CURTO AGUILERA, Adrián. Evaluation of Clinical Survival Success of Short Implants: Review of the Literature. Int. J. Odontostomat. [online]. 2012, vol.6, n.2, pp.201-203. ISSN 0718-381X.

The purpose of this study was to evaluate different published clinical studies of short dental implants and their clinical success rate. A systematic search in January 2012 in PubMed and SciELO database with key words: dental implants, short dental implants and success survival. We evaluated the articles published in the last five years. Results were limited to clinical trials. Relevant articles were then evaluated. Four articles entered the final review. A total of 4300 implants were placed of which 41 (0.95%) failed. The survival rates ranged from 96.6% to 99.3%. Recent studies demostrate that short dental implants can be predictable and have a success rate similar to that of conventional implants as long as they are placed after careful planning and following strict protocol.

Keywords : dental implants; short implants; success survival.
