Abstract

Objective:

This study aimed to perform a review of the literature regarding the survival rate of dental implants with immediate loading using insertion torque of 30 Ncm.

Material and Methods:

A systematic review was performed based on the Preferred Reporting Items for Systematic Reviews and Meta-Analyses and the Cochrane Handbook for Systematic Reviews of Interventions (PROSPERO CRD42014015323). The search was performed in the PubMed, Web of Science, Cochrane Library electronic, OVID, and Scielo databases. Manual searches were also performed. The articles identified were assessed independently by 3 researchers. Clinical trials reporting dental implants with immediate loading and 30 Ncm torque in patients ages 18 years or older were included.

Results:

The searches yielded 589 studies. Six studies were included in the systematic review. The survival rate of dental implants was 96.8%. Three studies showed a low potential risk of bias.

Conclusion:

There is not strong evidence that insertion torque of 30 Ncm is enough for implant survival in cases of immediate loading.
