Turned Implants in Vertical Augmented Bone: A Retrospective Study with 13 to 21 Years Follow-Up
Massimo Simion, MD, DDS/Luca Ferrantino, DDS, MSc/Eleonora Idotta, DDS, PhD/Fernando Zarone

This important publication reports in detail on the success, survival, and peri-implant clinical health and radiographic evaluation of stability of turned implants placed in augmented bone. In a field where long-term data is often associated with 12- to 36-month studies, a follow-up range of 13 to 21 years inclusive of 33 patients is quite an accomplishment. The findings of this study are that the majority of turned implants placed in vertically augmented ridges remain stable over the long term. No recession was noted for 95% of the implants included. However peri-implantitis was present in relation to 9.9% of the implants, which is slightly higher than the rate for implants placed in native bone.
