Condition partially edentulous jaw
Treatment osseospeed™ tx
Sponsor Dentsply Implants
Start date June 2011
End date October 2017
Trial size 42 participants
Trial identifier NCT01389245, CHN-0001


The purpose of this study is to investigate the clinical efficacy of Osseospeed™ TX implants in a Chinese population by evaluation of marginal bone level alteration, implant stability and implant survival in the posterior maxilla up to 3 years after loading. Hypothesis: Early loading of the posterior maxilla is a safe and predictable procedure.
