Study on ASTRA TECH Implant System, OsseoSpeed™ Implants in Patients Missing All Teeth in the Upper Jaw, Restored With Provisional Teeth Within 24 Hours
The safety and scientific validity of this study is the responsibility of the study sponsor and investigators. Listing a study does not mean it has been evaluated by the U.S. Federal Government.
Read our disclaimer for details.
The purpose of the study is to evaluate ASTRA TECH Implant System, OsseoSpeed™ implants, in patients with totally edentulous upper jaws and poor bone quality and quantity, when provisional artificial teeth are attached within 24 hours. The primary objective is to investigate implant survival rate.
Condition or disease
Device: ASTRA TECH Implant System, OsseoSpeed™, all dimensions.
An Open, Prospective, Multicenter Study to Evaluate the Outcome of ASTRA TECH Implant System, OsseoSpeed™ Implants, in Patients With Totally Edentulous Maxillas and Poor Bone Quality and Quantity in an Immediate Loading Protocol.
Implant Survival Rate [ Time Frame: At 5-year follow-up ]
An implant that has failed to osseointegrate, lost its osseointegration or fractured was considered a failure effective from the date of removal. The survival rate for individual implants was analyzed at each visit. Cumulative implant survival rate was calculated using Kaplan-Meier life-table estimation and reported as percentage of survived implants.
