This prospective study evaluated the clinical outcome of immediately restored screw-type implants for the replacement of mandibular (pre)molars. The results were based on survival, clinical stability and on changes of bone levels from implant placement to delivery of the definitive superstructure 6 months after insertion. In this study, 24 patients were treated according to an immediate loading protocol. Forty XiVE implants were placed in the mandibular (pre)molar regions for single-tooth restoration and the treatment of free-end situations. Radiographic bone levels in relation to implant margins were measured at the time of insertion and recorded. All implants were provided with a transfer coping and restored with provisional crowns within 7 days. After 6 months, the final restorations were fabricated. At this time, survival, Periotest value and radiographic bone levels were assessed. A total of 40 XiVE implants were placed with an insertion torque value of at least 45 N cm. The median Periotest value 6 months post-insertion was -5 (maximum -2, minimum -7). The mean radiographic coronal bone level at prosthetic delivery was 1.4 mm (SD+/-0.57) compared with 0.47 mm (SD+/-0.37) at the time of insertion. No implant failures were observed up to prosthetic restoration 6 months post-insertion. The present data of immediately loaded implants in the posterior mandible are comparable to results with conventional loaded implants. Additional long-term data will be necessary to include this protocol as a standard procedure in our treatment concepts for the edentulous posterior mandible.
