Reports of clinical outcomes of wide-diameter implants (≥6 mm) are scarce in the literature. This case series1 investigated the outcomes of wide-diameter implants (NobelSpeedy Groovy WP 6 mm) immediately provisionalized for single molar replacement in healed sites.
After 1 year, the implant showed good survival and success rates (98.1%), and minimal bone remodeling (−0.17 mm). Soft tissue response was particularly positive, with bleeding or inflammation found at only 4.4% and ideal papilla score recorded at 83.8% of sites. No procedure-related or device-related adverse events were reported. This study confirms the safety and effectiveness of wide-platform (6 mm) implants as a valuable posterior solution in a real world setting.
