OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to compare the performance of two non-splinted implants used as retention for a mandibular overdenture when applying conventional or early loading protocols. MATERIAL AND METHODS Twenty edentulous patients were treated with two unsplinted and non-submerged implants (15 mm long, TiUnite RP, Brånemark System) in the anterior mandible. The patients were randomly allotted into two groups: (i) test group (Group A), in which the overdenture was connected 1 week… CONTINUE READING
