Immediate loading of maxillary and mandibular implant-supported fixed complete dentures: a 1- to 10-year retrospective study

J Oral Implantol. 2012 Sep;38 Spec No:469-76. doi: 10.1563/AAID-JOI-D-11-00027. Epub 2011 Sep 26.

Abstract

This study evaluated the success rates of 50 full-arch maxillary and/or mandibular implant-supported fixed complete dentures. After a mean follow-up time of 42.1 months, 269 implants remained in function, which corresponded to cumulative implant success rates of 85.2% and an absolute success rate of 90.6% (269/297 implants). This study suggested that higher implant failure rates might be associated with a dental history of bruxism (29.3%) vs no history of bruxism (4.6%) and surgeons with limited experience (≤5 years; 12.2%) vs surgeons with experience (2.4%).
