Objectives: The aim of this study was to prospectively assess clinical and radiological results in a group of patients treated with Camlog implants supporting mostly single-tooth, and partial restorations.
Material and Methods: In this study, patients were treated with implant (Camlog Biotechnologies, Basel, Switzerland) supported all ceramic single crowns and followed for 1 year. The implants were evaluated by clinical and radiographic parameters. Clinical parameters like plaque index (PI), sulcus bleeding index (BI), peri-implant probing depth (PD), and marginal bone loss (MBL) were recorded. Repeated-measurement ANOVA, Kruskal-Wallis test, Wilcoxon signed rank test and paired samples test were used for statistical analysis.
Results: Twenty-six implants were placed in 21 patients. At the recall examinations, all implants were successfully integrated, demonstrating healthy peri-implant soft tissues as documented by standard clinical parameters. The mean MBL at baseline was 0,98 mm ± 0,51 at mesial side; 0,88 mm ± 0,40 at distal side. The MBL reached to 1,24 mm ± 0,58 at mesial; 1,11 mm ± 0,46 at distal side at 1 year. The difference was statistically insignificant. Soft tissues were clinically healthy. The mean PD at baseline was 2,95 mm ± 0,59 and increased to 3,19 mm ± 0,77 at 1 year but the difference was statistically insignificant.
Conclusions: Camlog implants in the anterior zone reveal successful clinical and radiographic outcomes when ideal treatment steps are performed.
