For dental implants to be successful, osseointegration must occur, but it is unknown how much time must pass for osseointegration to be established. Preclinical studies suggested that titanium implants with a sandblasted and acid-etched (SLA) surface were more osteoconductive and allowed more rapid osseointegration than machined or turned implant surfaces. The hypothesis of this study was that implants with an SLA surface could be loaded in half the conventional healing time of machined-surface implants and that, after loading, the implants would be successful for 5 years.
