Recently, researchers from the Department of Prosthodontics and implants of Foshan stomatological hospital published a paper to evaluate the 5-year clinical effect of short implants in the area with insufficient bone height.
study pointed out that the implantation of Bicon short implants in the posterior teeth with insufficient bone height can simplify the operation, shorten the treatment time of patients, and achieve a higher success rate of implantation However, in the posterior maxillary region with bone height less than 3 mm, short implants should be carefully used to prevent implants from entering the maxillary sinus.
this paper was published in the 01 issue of Chinese Journal of dental implant Science in 2015
A total of 54 Bicon short implants were implanted in 43 patients with insufficient bone height in posterior teeth. Implants were implanted and guided bone regeneration was performed simultaneously in patients with bone defects around
implants The height of implant edge was measured by X-ray and clinical examination
During the first stage operation, one implant entered the maxillary sinus cavity; in the second stage operation, one implant was loose and fell off in one case, and the other 52 short Bicon implants were well osseointegrated. After 36-60 months (average 46 months) of follow-up observation, X-ray film showed that bone tissue around the implant was stable The average crown to implant height ratio of
implant was (1.38 plusmn; 0.32). The average bone resorption around
implant was about 0.54 plusmn; 0.47 mm
