  Purpose

The purpose of this study is to compare marginal bone level changes between ASTRA TECH Implant System; Fixture ST and Biomet 3i; Osseotite® Implants. Subjects with partial edentulism in the posterior maxilla and/or mandible will be included and a one-stage surgical protocol will be used. Implants will be loaded within 15 weeks from installation. The subjects will be followed for 3 years.


Condition Intervention
Jaw, Edentulous, Partially
Device: ASTRA TECH Implant System; Fixture ST: Ø 4.5 cm in lengths of 9, 11 and 13 mm.
Device: 3i Osseotite® implant: Ø 4.0 in lengths of 8.5, 10, 11.5 and 13 mm

Study Type: Interventional
Study Design: Allocation: Randomized
Endpoint Classification: Efficacy Study
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Open Label
Primary Purpose: Treatment
Official Title: An Open, Randomized Study to Compare Two Dental Implant Systems With Regard to Changes in Marginal Bone Level.

Further study details as provided by Dentsply Implants:

Primary Outcome Measures:
  • Marginal Bone Level Changes [ Time Frame: 3 years after implant placement ] [ Designated as safety issue: No ]
    Marginal bone adaptation was expressed as the distance from the implant reference point to the most coronal bone-to-implant contact on the mesial and distal side of the implant. Bone adaptation in millimeters at the 3-year follow-up visit were compared to values obtained at Implant placement. Positive value indicates bone gain and negative value bone loss.
