The Successful Application of Osseointegrated Implants to the Posterior Jaw: A Long-term Retrospective Study

Myron Nevins, DDS/Burton Langer, DMD

PMID: 8270312

This long-term study has demonstrated the successful use of osseointegrated implants to replace posterior teeth in the partially dentate patient. A total of 1,203 Nobelpharma implants placed by two periodontists practicing in traditional office settings were included in the survey. Of the 551 implants placed in the mandible, 25 failed, for a success rate of 95.5%. Of the 247 mandibular prostheses fabricated for 200 mandibles, 8 failed, for a prosthesis stability rate exceeding 97%. Of the 652 implants placed in the maxilla, 31 failed, for a success rate of 95.2%. Of the 250 maxillary prostheses fabricated for 193 maxillae, 2 failed, for a success rate exceeding 99%. The results compare favorably to previous reports in terms of implant survival and stability. (INT J ORAL MAXILLOFAC IMPLANTS 1993;8:428-432.)

Key words: implant prosthesis stability, mandibular posterior implants, maxillary posterior implants, osseointegration, retrospective clinical study
