Abstract

This study compared six commercially available implants placed in an animal model for 5 months. Twelve of the implants were used for light microscopic analysis, and the remaining 12 were used for scanning electron microscopic analysis. With the exception of one implant, newly formed bone was evident in direct apposition to portions of all control implants. The light microscopic and scanning electron microscopic evaluations of the tissues surrounding the six commercially available implant types indicated that initial osseointegration is likely with all types. Implant design, material, and submergibility do not appear to be essential for initial osseointegration to occur as long as a biocompatible material is selected and the implant is placed using minimally traumatic surgical techniques.
