PMID: 11669247

Forty-eight Endopore dental implants were placed in the posterior mandibles of 24 partially edentulous patients. Seventeen of these implants replaced premolar teeth, while 31 replaced molars. Only 7- mm and 9-mm implants were used, and the majority of prosthetic restorations (83%) were single crowns. After a mean functional time of 32.6 months (range, 8.2 to 50.3 months), the implant survival rate was 100% and assessment of available radiographic data showed minimal to no crestal bone loss.
