Short-implants – An Alternative To Bone Grafting
Clinical Trial ( IRB ) #: 10-051-3
Title: Short-implants – An Alternative To Bone Grafting
Principal Investigator: Dr. Thomas Taylor
Description: The purpose of this trial is to compare two techniques for implant placement into the posterior upper jaw. One technique involves bone grafting and the use of larger implants (11, 13 or 15 mm implants); the other will invoke the of a very short implant (6 mm) and thus avoid the need of bone grafting of the sinus. The primary objective is to compare implant survival rate. Secondary objectives are to evaluate: marginal bone level (MBL) alterations; condition of periimplant mucosa, crown-to-implant ratio; the resource us and costs assoctiated with the treatments; Oral Health Impact Profile (OHIP); and safety by recording of Adverse Events (AEs) and Adverse Devise Effects (ADEs).
