|Title:||Immediate occlusal loading of extrasinus zygomatic implants: A prospective cohort study with a follow-up period of 8 years|
|Abstract:||The aim of this study was to evaluate the long-term success rate of immediate occlusal loading of extrasinus zygomatic implants after an 8-year follow-up. From 62 patients who needed implant treatment in 2003, 25 patients who presented with maxillary atrophy met the inclusion criteria and agreed to participate in the study. All patients received fixed dentures under immediate occlusal loading supported by extrasinus zygomatic implants associated with anterior standard implants. No bone grafting procedures were performed. During the 8-year follow-up period, 21 patients underwent clinical evaluation and radiographic examinations every 6 months. This study conforms to the STROBE guidelines regarding prospective cohort studies. 40 extrasinus zygomatic and 74 anterior standard implants were-evaluated. All patients were clinically free of signs and symptoms of sinus disturbance at all follow-up appointments. After 8 years, the success rates of extrasinus zygomatic implants, standard anterior implants and definitive prostheses were 97.5%, 95.9% and 95.2%, respectively. Within the limits of this study, immediate occlusal loading of extrasinus zygomatic implants presents a predictable treatment option for the atrophic maxilla.|
