Dental implants inserted in native bone: Cases series analyses

Riccardo Guidi, Alessandro Viscioni, Frencesco Dattola, Francesco Carinci


Background: The concept of osseointegration, i.e., the direct anchorage of endosseous implants made of commercially pure or titanium alloy to the bone caused a breakthrough in oral rehabilitation. The identification of factors for long‑term survival and success rate are the main goal of the recent literature. Several variables can influence the final result, and in general they are grouped in surgery‑, host‑, implant‑, and occlusion‑related factors.

Materials and Methods: A retrospective analysis on a large series of dental implants was performed to detect those variables influencing the clinical outcome. In the period between January 2007 and December 2009, 157 patients were operated. A total of 429 implants were inserted. Dental implants are reliable devices to be used in oral rehabilitation.

Results: Globally, very few implants were lost at the end of the follow‑up period. Slight but significant differences existed among different implants types with regard to peri‑implant bone resorption.

Conclusion: A better clinical outcome was revealed for Sweden and Martina global implant.
