Editor’s choice: Eckert S. et al.: 1 year follow up on immediately loaded fixed full-arch implant-retained prosthesis using the Straumann Pro Arch concept.
In the current issue of the newsletter, we would like to draw your attention on the article by Eckert S et al. published in the International Journal of Oral & Maxillofacial Implants (JOMI).
The authors evaluated use the of intentionally tilted Straumann® BLT implants to retain an immediately loaded fixed full-arch implant-retained prosthesis using four implants according to the Straumann® Pro Arch concept.
They report implant survival of 98.1% after 1 year of function and 99.8% of prostheses fulfilling “intention to treat” category and loaded on the day of implant surgery.
These data confirm that the Straumann® Pro Arch can be considered safe and predictable option for immediate full arch restoration.
