Abstract

Purpose:

The aim of this research was to evaluate an innovative implant design for different placement and loading protocols. The unique implant is a combination of tapered and cylindrical shape, which is aimed to enhance initial stability and long-term osseointegration.

Materials and Methods:

Four hundred and sixty implants were placed in 141 patients under different placement and loading protocols in similarity to those encountered in a dental office. Implants were followed and evaluated for 1 year to assert the survival rate of the newly introduced implant.

Results:

The results showed a total of 97.4% survival rate, ranging from 92% to 98.6% depending on the different protocols. There was no statistical difference between the different protocol groups.

Conclusion:

The new implant design showed good results for 1 year of follow-up, comparable with the literature, and could be a good choice for every implant-based procedure.
