Study Summary

This trial looks at how well the PrimeTaper EV implant works in single tooth restorations, specifically how long the implant lasts.

Who is the study for?
Adults aged 18-75 needing a single tooth implant in specific positions of the jaw, with stable occlusion and adjacent teeth or crowns. Excludes those allergic to titanium/stainless steel, with uncontrolled oral diseases, bruxism, immunosuppression, recent heavy treatments (chemo/radiation), substance abuse, severe systemic diseases or conditions affecting healing.Check my eligibility
What is being tested?
The trial is testing the PrimeTaper EV implant's success rate for single tooth restorations after one year. It aims to assess how well this particular dental implant survives and integrates into the jawbone over time.See study design
What are the potential side effects?
While not explicitly listed in the provided information, common side effects of dental implants can include pain at the implant site, swelling of gums and face, bruising of skin and gums, minor bleeding and infection.

Treatment Details

Study Objectives

Outcome measures can provide a clearer picture of what you can expect from a treatment.
Primary outcome measures
Implant survival, i.e. number of implants in place counted clinically, 1 year after permanent restoration.
Secondary outcome measures
Change of implant stability quotient value (ISQ) between implant placement and permanent restoration.
Change of marginal bone level up to 5 years post permanent restoration compared to permanent restoration.
Change of probing pocket depth (PPD) in mm between permanent restoration, and 6 months, 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 years after permanent restoration.

Why did patients apply to this trial?

I have teeth that need to be replaced.and would live to try this out. I need implants, or at the very least partials for both upper and lower missing back molars, all except one which meeds to be extracted and bone grafts.
PatientReceived 1 prior treatment
I've been needing single tooth restorations for years now. My jaw has started repositioning, both top and bottem teeth are trying to find teeth that aren't there when chewing, have gain multiple scars on tongue and under lips from eating. Very painful! This is the trial I've waited on. Thank you!
PatientReceived 1 prior treatment
I currently have my molar and premolar extracted since August of 2022, and now my dentist says the molar and premolar on the left side of my mouth has to get extracted as well. The cost of getting so many implants is really expensive and it's almost impossible to be able to afford the cost of treatment within the US.
