Study Summary

The purpose of the study is to evaluate the PrimeTaper's implant survival rate 1 year after permanent restoration (PR). After being identified as being eligible for the study (i.e., via screening and pre-planning surgical visits), subjects will have the PrimeTaper implant placed with a post-op check-up 1-2 weeks later, as well an impression visit in order to develop the permanent restoration. Furthermore, the permanent restoration will be placed no more than 6 months beyond the implant placement visit. After the permanent restoration, there will be follow-up visits at: (i) 6 months, (ii) 1 year, (iii) 2 years, (iv) 3 years, (v) 4 years, and (vi) 5 years.
