Are there any clinical studies about Patent™ implants?

Yes. The Patent™ implant system is backed by two long-term clinical studies — Brüll 2014 and Becker 2017.

 

The retrospective study (Brüll 2014) examined the clinical performance of Patent™implants on 74 consecutively treated patients with 121 implants over 3 years. The following are the key takeaways from the study:

   96.5% implant survival rate, comparable with titanium.

   Implants were placed immediately in extraction sockets and in healed sites.

   Stable or increased marginal bone levels.

   Bleeding on probing (BOP) less around implants than other teeth.

   Probing pocket depth (PPD) less around implants than other teeth.

   Soft tissue conditions were better than around titanium implants.

   Only one reported implant fracture.

   No fractures of the glass fiber posts.

 

The prospective study (Becker 2017) examined the clinical performance of Patent™ implants on 52 patients with single tooth gaps in the posterior maxilla over 2 years. The following are the key takeaways from the study:

   No implant fractures.

   95.8% implant survival rate, comparable with titanium.

   Simultaneous bone augmentations and/or sinus lifts did not impact survival rates

   The volume of keratinized gingiva increased over time.

   One crown and glass fiber post fracture reported, i.e., a prosthetic complication rate of 2.1%.
