Objectives: The aim of this study was to evaluate the length and diameter properties of single dental implants that posteriorly placed on the mandible and maxilla.
Materials and Methods: Two hundred ninety three posterior single dental implants were evaluated in this retrospective study by same surgical procedure from 2010 to 2016 years. Demographics of patients, anatomic localizations, implant characteristics (length and diameter), satisfaction of the patient and implant loss were recorded. Implants that placed only single in posterior defect site (premolar or molar) with limited by a natural tooth or a prosthetic restored tooth on the either side of edentulous region were included. Visual analogue scale (VAS) was used for the satisfaction of the patients. The descriptive statistical analysis were done.
Results: A total of 275 patients with 293 dental implants (139 male and 136 female), ranging from 18 to 72 years (42.13 mean years) were analyzed. The majority of the dental implants were inserted mandible (156, 53.3%), 137 in maxilla (137, 46.7%). The first molar region was the most implantation area, inserting with 181 (61.9%) implants, of which 115 (39.3%) were in mandible, 66 (22.6%) in maxilla. The most frequent implant diameter placed was the 4 mm (54, 18.4%) and 12 mm (94, 32%) was the most frequent used implant length. Nine implants were failed and all success rate was found to be 97%.
Conclusion: According to these results, single dental implants in the posterior region can be used safely with high success rates.
