First data: Stable bone levels

by: Nobel Biocare News

Interim analysis of the single arm prospective clinical trial with immediate temporization of NobelReplace Conical Connection implants demonstrates high implant survival rates, excellent soft tissue results, and significantly improved quality of life.

(Pozzi, Baer et al., J Dent Res 93 (Spec Iss B):#1245, 2014.) (

Preliminary data from 82 patients with 87 immediately temporized NobelReplace Conical Connection implants placed in the healed sites of the anterior maxilla were presented at IADR in June, 2014.

At 1 year, the results available with 57 patients / 59 implants show a 98.9% CSR and less than 1 mm bone remodeling overall, and a stabilization of marginal bone after 6 months (–0.09 mm remodeling between the 6 month and 1 year visits).

In addition, good soft tissue responses are evidenced by healthy peri-implant mucosa and better papilla scores compared to the baseline. Furthermore, the patients report (OHIP 14) a vast improvement in quality of life.

These results highlight the effectiveness of NobelReplace Conical Connection implants as a treatment option for patients with a single missing tooth in the anterior maxilla.
