Evaluation of specifically designed implants placed in the low-density jaw bones: A clinico-radiographical study.

Munjal S, Munjal S, Hazari P, Mahajan H, Munjal A, Mehta DS - Contemp Clin Dent (2015 Jan-Mar)

Bottom Line: The mean plaque and gingival indices showed a reduction at repeated intervals.The mean sulcular bleeding showed a slight reduction which was statistically significant.An overall mean bone loss was observed after 12 months follow-up, which was statistically not significant.

ABSTRACT

Aim: In the less dense bone, it is difficult to obtain implant anchorage. The present study was undertaken to determine the survival rate of Maestro™ implants placed in d3 and d4 bones.

Materials and methods: Fourteen patients (10 males and 4 females) were selected for the study and implants were evaluated for posttreatment changes in at 3, 6, 9 and 12 months from implant placement. The implant probing depth and mobility were recorded 3 and 6 months after prosthesis placement. Also, peri-implant bone level was assessed at the baseline and 12 months postoperatively, followed by a statistical analysis.

Results: The mean plaque and gingival indices showed a reduction at repeated intervals. The mean sulcular bleeding showed a slight reduction which was statistically significant. An overall mean bone loss was observed after 12 months follow-up, which was statistically not significant. The overall survival rate of implants was reported as 92.3%.

Conclusion: The specific implant used in the study is advantageous in the soft bone condition.

Clinical significance: Although, there is a great evidence of implant failure in compromised jaw quality, the newer designs and approaches suggest that the poor quality is not a contraindication.

Mentions: The cover screws were exposed after 4 and 6 months in mandible and maxilla respectively to be replaced by permucosal extension, followed by impressions with the medium viscosity Elite implant™ (Zhermack® Italy) using a custom tray; and the cemented metal-ceramic crown was delivered finally. The clinical parameters were analyzed statistically and a 3, 6, 9 and 12 months record of the modified plaque index,[10] gingival index,[11] modified sulcular bleeding index;[10] and clinical implant mobility scale[12] was done. The implant probing depth was checked using a True Pressure Sensitive® probe. The standardized long cone periapical radiographs using long cone were recorded similarly [Figure 5].
