Eight-Year Clinical Retrospective Study of Titanium Plasma-Sprayed and Hydroxyapatite-Coated Cylinder Implants

Stephen L. Wheeler, DDS


PMID: 8752555

A total of 1,202 press-fit cylinder implants were placed in 479 patients from March 1986 to March 1994. The patientsí ages ranged from 14 to 88 years. The implants included 889 titanium plasma-sprayed implants and 313 hydroxyapatite-coated implants. There were no statistically significant differences in the distribution of hydroxy apatite-coated and titanium plasma-sprayed implants based on implant location, type of restoration, age, and sex. Although differences in long-term success rates based on simple percentages were also not statistically significant, cumulative survival rates based on life table analysis up to 96 months were 92.7% for titanium plasma-sprayed systems and 77.8% for hydroxyapatite-coated systems. Graphical interpretations of these data revealed interesting contrasts, including the timing and results of implant failure, which are discussed in detail.
