Abstract

Objective

The aim of this pilot study is to evaluate to value of primary implant stability for two-piece zirconia implants and longitudinally stability changes of implants during the healing period of 16 weeks.

Materials and methods

Ten patients treated with 12 two-piece non metallic zirconia dioxide root shape implant (4/10 mm, Axis Biodental, Les Bios, Switzerland) for single tooth replacement in the upper premolar area. Resonance frequency analysis (RFA) was used for assessment of longitudinally changes of implant stability during 16-weeks observing period. All patients have been re-evaluated 1 year after loading.

Results

Mean implant stability quotient (ISQ) value of initial implant stability for 12 implants was 60.25 (3.72). Statistically, significant decrease was noted in the first 3 weeks after insertion (p = 0.000). Also, statistically significant increasing of implant stability was recorded for observing period for 6th to 16th week.

Conclusion

Increasing of ISQ value during observing period suggests loading of two-piece zirconia dioxide root shape implant for single tooth replacement in the upper premolar area, after healing period of 4 months.
