The Frialit-2 Implant System: Five-Year Clinical Experience in Single-Tooth and Immediately Postextraction Applications
In an observational study of 696 Frialit-2 implants in 376 patients that was carried out between 1990 and 1995, implants of varying diameters and lengths were delivered for a range of indications in the maxilla and mandible. Single-tooth replacement was performed in 42% of cases; of these, 22.4% were placed immediately following extraction. Stu dy parameters (Plaque Index, Gingival Index, probing depth, Periotest value, and peri-implant bone loss) are reported in detail. Statistical analysis is based on a 97.6% rate of recall. The overall success rate was found to be 96% using the Kaplan-Meier statistical analysis. No difference was apparent between single-tooth applications and prosthesis restorations.
