Abstract

Purpose: To compare time-dependent outcome of immediately loaded 1-piece (1P) implants with delayed loaded 1P and 2-piece (2P) implants. Materials and Methods: A cohort of 33 patients divided into 3 groups: group A, 13 patients, 49 immediately placed and loaded 1P implants; group B, 11 patients, immediately placed and delayed loaded 1P implants; and group C, 10 patients, 39 2P implants delayed placed and loaded in a two-stage procedure. Marginal bone loss (MBL) was analyzed using x-ray radiography every 6 months, 1 year, and 3 years. Results: A statistically significant mean MBL was observed between baseline, 6 months, 1 year, and 3 years in all groups. There was no statistical significant difference in MBL between immediate and delayed loaded 1P implants. MBL around mandibular implants was lower compared with maxillary implants. Conclusions: 2P implants showed less MBL compared with 1P implants in both maxilla and mandible. There was no statistical difference in MBL between immediate and delayed loaded 1P implants. Immediate loaded implants show more MBL in maxilla.
