Purpose: The aim of this retrospective study was to report the survival rate of a novel hybrid hydrophilic dental implant design for all bone types.
Materials and Methods: This study evaluated the data collected from patients who received at least one implant to support a full-arch, partial, or single-crown dental rehabilitation in the maxilla or mandible. Implant survival rate was evaluated according to the clinical area and bone type, loading protocol, implant length and diameter, and placement torque.
Results: A total of 453 tapered hybrid implants placed in 101 patients (mean age: 56.39 ± 12.98 years) were evaluated, and the survival rate was 99.6%. The follow-up period was up to 24 months. Regarding bone quality, types I, III, and IV presented a 100% survival rate, whereas type II presented a 99.3% survival rate. The vast majority of implants were immediately loaded (443 implants), which achieved placement torques between 32 and 60 Ncm or higher, and presented an implant survival rate of 99.5%.
Conclusion: An overall survival rate of 99.6% was found for hydrophilic hybrid dental implants when placed in all bone types, and no statistically significant difference was observed between them. However, further studies should be necessary to confirm these preliminary results.
