This analysis1 evaluated 32 consecutive patients who received 46 NobelParallel CC implants in healed (n=24) and post-extraction sockets (n=22) to restore single missing teeth in either jaw. All implants were immediately loaded and 3–5 months later received NobelProcera definitive abutments.
After 6 months of follow-up, the implant cumulative survival rate was 100% and the marginal bone remodeling from insertion was –0.51 ±0.34 mm. All implants showed no bleeding on probing and low plaque accumulation, while the papilla index improved over time and was 93.7% at 6 months. No biological or technical complications were observed during this short follow-up.
The authors conclude that these favorable results suggest “the novel NobelParallel CC implant can be considered as an effective and biologically beneficial treatment option for immediate loading in partially edentulous patients in both jaws.”
