Clinical and radiographic outcome of Camlog implants in partially edentulous cases after an observation period of 10 years.
Vanlioglu, Burcin / Özkan, Yaşar / Kulak-Özkan, Yasemin
Objectives: The aim of this clinical study was to evaluate the outcome of 253 Camlog implants in the posterior maxilla and mandible in 67 patients after 10 years of functional loading; to report the incidence of the most common technical problems, in implant-supported fixed partial dentures (FPDs), and to and assess the survival and success rate (event-free survival) after 10 years of function.
Materials and Methods: Patients with missing posterior teeth were treated with implants and follow-up examinations were scheduled 1week after suprastructure placement, after 6 months and annually for 10 years. Clinical parameters like plaque index (PI), sulcus bleeding index (BI), peri-implant probing depth (PD), and marginal bone loss (MBL) were recorded along with any biological and mechanical complications at baseline and recall evaluations. Repeated-measurement ANOVA, Kruskal-Wallis test, Wilcoxon signed rank test and paired samples test were used for statistical analysis (p=.05).Complications with implant supported restorations were recorded. Success was defined as event-free survival. Survival and success probabilities were estimated with the Kaplan-Meier estimator.
Results: In 67 patients, a total of 253 implants were placed and restored with 143 implant-supported FPDs (63 single crowns, 80 FPD bridges). Cumulative implant survival rate was 100 %. At 10 years, the mean PD value was 2.33 (0.58) mm, and MBL was 0.35 mm. The survival rate of FPDs supported by implants was 97.94 % after mean follow-up oat 10 years. The success rate (event-free survival) of the FPDs was 96.9%.
Conclusions: Fixed partial dentures supported by Camlog implants showed high clinical and radiographic outcomes and low technical complications rates at 10 years.
