Abstract
The aim of this study was to evaluate the clinical and esthetic outcomes of 10 consecutive single-tooth implant restorations in the anterior maxilla. A specific treatment protocol consisting of (1) atraumatic extraction of the failing tooth, (2) placement of an SLActive bone-level implant with simultaneous guided bone regeneration at 6 to 8 weeks postextraction, (3) loading of a provisional restoration at 2 to 3 months following implant placement, (4) production of a customized impression coping, and (5) loading of the definitive all-ceramic abutment and crown 6 months after delivery of the provisional restoration was utilized in all cases. The outcomes were assessed 1 year after loading of the definitive restoration using standard clinical parameters: pink (PES) and white esthetic scores (WES). All implants were successfully integrated, accounting for a 100% survival and success rate. Besides clinical success, the application of the specific treatment protocol may be able to provide esthetically pleasing single-tooth implant restorations in the anterior maxilla, as was demonstrated by the results for PES (7.9 ± 1.7) and WES (7.0 ± 1.5).
