abstract
Introduction The Co-Axis® implant (Southern Implants®, Irene, South Africa) has a 12 degrees angle in the implant neck to overcome angulation problems. Aim To examine bone loss, peri-implant health and esthetical outcome after 1 year followup. Materials and methods 15 single implants were placed in 14 patients in the pre-maxilla and immediately loaded with a screw-retained full ceramic crown. Peri-apical radiographs and standardized photographs were taken to determine bone loss and soft tissue changes. Plaque and bleeding levels were assessed. Patients’ satisfaction was measured using the OHIP-14 questionnaire. Results After 1 year, all implants survived and mean bone loss was 1.20 mm, with no significant changes after 6 months. Plaque levels were low and no significant changes were observed. Bleeding levels decreased during the initial 3 months, but were constant thereafter. Before final torqueing was performed after 6 months, 4 cases of screw loosening occurred. Also, 1 crown had a piece of porcelain chipped off. Patients reported an overall increase in well-being. A mean mid-facial recession of 0.37 mm was observed. The mesial papilla showed a slight increase of 0.14 mm, while the distal papilla decreased 0.35 mm. Conclusion With a 100% survival and stable bone levels after 6 months, the Co-Axis implant showed a good clinical outcome when immediately loaded. The use of a full ceramic crown as a first and final restoration resulted in a good aesthetic outcome with few changes in papilla fill, although mid-facial soft tissue is only stable after 1 year.
