Abstract Objective. To evaluate, in a case series, survival rate and complications of Brånemark Integration BioHelix(™) dental implants, placed according to conventional procedures in patients treated consecutively in a Swedish specialist private practice after 5 years. Materials and methods. Eighty-three consecutively-treated patients received 89 final fixed prostheses supported by 310 implants placed according to 'conventional' procedure, i.e. no implants shorter than 10 mm, no immediate post-extraction implants and no bone-grafting procedures. In 70 patients, implants were left to heal submerged, whereas 13 patients were treated according to the one-stage protocol. All implants were incorporated in a prosthetic restoration. Probing was only performed when clinical signs of inflammation were present and this was then evaluated further with intra-oral radiographic examination. Outcome measures were implant survival and prosthetic complications. Results. Five years after implant placement, two fixtures were removed because of loosening. One fixture was lost after 12 months in the lower jaw in one patient and one fixture was lost in the upper jaw in another patient after 3 years, both inserted using the two-stage technique. No other prosthetic complications occurred, giving a 99.3% cumulative survival rate. Conclusions. Brånemark Integration BioHelix(™) dental implants placed according to one- or two-stage procedures in patients in a private practice produced excellent 5-year results. Randomized clinical trials with suitable controls are suggested to confirm these results.
