An evaluation of the Bicon implant system using short implants : patient experience and implant success in the short term
Clarke, Emily
THESIS 8873 The aim of this study was to evaluate the success of short Bicon implants, patient experience in relation to implant placement and patient satisfaction with treatment in the short term. 45 hydroxyapatite coated short Bicon implants were placed in 25 patients and followed up for 3 to 6 months following restoration with Integrated Abutment Crowns (IAC). Implants ranged in length from 5.7mm to 8mm and in width from 4.5mm to 6mm. Implant survival and success rates were evaluated in addition to plaque and gingival health, interproximal papilla presence, marginal bone levels, and Integrated Abutment Crown aesthetics. Patient anxiety was assessed using the Spielberger State Trait Anxiety Inventory. A Health Related Quality Of Life (HRQOL) instrument was used to assess patient pain experience and interference with daily activities. Patient satisfaction was evaluated using a questionnaire. The interplay between these patient related factors was analysed. A comparison was made between clinician satisfaction ratings with the tlnal restoration and the patient's satisfaction.
