Sammanfattning (abstract):
Background: Little is known of the long-term clinical and radiographic performance of moderately rough surface implants. Purpose: The aim of the present retrospective investigation was to study two pioneer cohorts of patients, that is, the first patients to receive Brånemark System® implants with a moderately rough surface (TiUnite™, Nobel Biocare AB, Göteborg, Sweden) at the present clinic. TiUnite implants were inserted either in compromised bone sites in a mixed-mouth concept together with turned implants or used solely. Patients were followed up over a period of 5 years with regard to implant survival and the marginal bone response. Materials and Methods: Patients who received both implant types (mixed group) comprised 41 subjects, and the second group (TiUnite group) comprised 70 subjects. A total of 110 turned and 68 TiUnite implants were placed in the mixed group, and 212 TiUnite implants in the TiUnite group. Follow-up radiographs were obtained at prosthesis placement and at the 1- and 5-year check-ups, and examined by independent observers. Results: One turned (0.9%) and two TiUnite (2.9%) implants failed in the mixed group, and three implants (1.6%) failed in the TiUnite group, indicating no significant differences between surfaces or groups (p < .05). The mean marginal bone loss at 5 years was 0.6 mm to 0.8 mm, also indicating no significant differences for the two implant types tested in the mixed group. Conclusions: Cumulative survival rates for the two implant surfaces were favorable at 5 years, and the marginal bone loss was low and similar for both implant surfaces.
