Also available as an ePub ahead of publication, an article in “Clinical Implant Dentistry and Related Research” documents the 10-year outcome of immediately loaded implants with the TiUnite surface.

TiUnite® 10-year, Immediate Loading

“10-Year Follow-Up of Immediately Loaded Implants with TiUnite Porous Anodized Surface,“ by Drs. Marco Degidi, Diego Nardi and Adriano Piattelli reports on a prospective study the authors carried out to assess the 10-year performance of TiUnite implants supporting fixed prostheses placed with an immediate loading approach in both postextractive and healed sites.

All the patients in this study received a fixed provisional restoration supported by parallel design, self-tapping implants with a TiUnite surface, and an external hexagonal connection.

Success and survival rate for restorations and implants, changes in marginal peri-implant bone level, probing depth measurements, biological or technical complications, and any other adverse event were recorded at yearly follow-ups.

The implants placed in healed and post-extractive sites, respectively, achieved a 98.05% and a 96.52% cumulative survival rate and the authors conclude that positive results—in terms of bone maintenance in the long-term perspective—are to be expected using immediately loaded implants with a TiUnite surface in both post-extractive and healed sites when adequate levels of oral hygiene are maintained.
