RESEARCH Immediate Loading of Maxillary and Mandibular ImplantSupported Fixed Complete Dentures: A 1- to 10-Year Retrospective Study Ting-Jen Ji, DDS, MSD1* Joseph Y. K. Kan, DDS, MS2 Kitichai Rungcharassaeng, DDS, MS3 Phillip Roe, DDS, MS2 Jaime L. Lozada, DMD1 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%). Key Words: implant-supported fixed complete denture, marginal bone change, immediate loading, surgical experience, immediate implant placement, bruxism INTRODUCTION rosthetic rehabilitation with an implantsupported fixed complete denture (ISFCD) has been well documented and is a predictable treatment modality for edentulous patients.1 Traditional guidelines for successful osseointegration have included a healing period of 3 to 6 months without functional loading.2,3 However, the use of an interim removable prosthesis during the course of treatment can be an inconvenience to patients.4 Recently, the immediate loading of ISFCDs was advocated, and comparable success rates have been reported.5–14 The placement of a provisional prosthesis immediately after implant placement can Advanced Education in Implant Dentistry, Loma Linda University School of Dentistry. 2 Department of Restorative Dentistry, Loma Linda University School of Dentistry. 3 Department of Orthodontics and Dentofacial Orthopedics, Loma Linda University School of Dentistry. * Corresponding author, e-mail: DOI: 10.1563/AAID-JOI-D-11-00027 1 P provide immediate esthetics and function, decrease the number of patient visits, and reduce morbidity of a second surgical intervention.4,15 This retrospective study evaluated the implant success rates of immediately loaded maxillary and/ or mandibular ISFCD. Factors affecting implant success rates and prosthetic survival rates were also assessed. MATERIALS METHODS AND This study was approved by the institutional review board of Loma Linda University and was conducted in the Center for Implant Dentistry, Loma Linda University School of Dentistry, Loma Linda, California. Treatment records were reviewed for patients who received a full-arch maxillary and/or mandibular ISFCD between January 1998 and December 2008. Patients were included if periapical radiographs were available from the time of surgery (with the attached prosthesis; T0) and at the last follow-up (T1).
