It is of interest to examine the Marginal Bone Loss (MBL) around a single titanium implant that was immediately loaded and implanted in a healed or new extraction site in the maxilla over a period of five years. This study involved 36 participants (21 men and 15 women, with an average age of 31 years), all of whom needed to have a single implant placed in the front maxillae. The average marginal bone loss (MBL) in extraction sockets increased by 0.270.18 mm after a year, 0.26 0.17 mm after three years, and 0.21 0.18 mm after five years. The mean change in MBL for the group of healed ridges was 0.27 0.18 mm for one year, 0.220.18 mm for three years, and 0.21 0.17mm for five years. Thus, implants loaded immediately and positioned in either healed ridges or extraction sockets had a similar effect on the local bone.
