Abstract

Survival Rate of Immediately Loaded Implants Restored using the Intraoral Welding Technique: A Literature Review

Objective: The aim of this review is to determine survival rates of endosseous implants immediately loaded using intraoral welding technique. Methods: The present review includes studies with patients planned for insertion of at least two adjacent dental implants into the maxilla and/or mandible followed by intraoral welding and immediate loading. Results: Survival rate ranges between 97.92-100% at 12-24 months, 97-99.1% at 26-36 months. Survival rate is 99.3% at 60 months and 90.31% at 72 months. Conclusions: long-term data are limited but survival rates are favourable over 60 month follow-ups. One-piece implants reveal higher survival rate in comparison with two-piece implants.
