Condition(s) targeted: Edentulism
Intervention: Dental implant Nanotite (Device); Dental implant Osseotite (Device)
Sponsored by: Biomet 3i, LLC

Michael S Reddy, DMD, Principal Investigator, Affiliation: University of Alabama at Birmingham
This study will evaluate the contributions of the Nanotite implant design when used by
graduate students in their first year of placing implants.
Official title: A Prospective Randomized-Controlled Evaluation of Nanotite and Osseotite Surfaced Implant Performance in Graduate Student Programs
Study design: Treatment, Randomized, Open Label, Placebo Control, Single Group Assignment, Safety/Efficacy Study
Primary outcome: integration success of the implant
Secondary outcome: Prosthesis survival and procedural success
This multicenter, prospective, randomized-controlled study will compare the performance of
the Nanotite vs. the standard Ossotite implants when placed by graduate students with little
or no prior experience. Enrolled patients will have the study site(s) randomized to either a
Nanotite (test) or an Osseotite (control) implant. The manner of treatment observed at the
participating center will be followed for this study.
Study Hypothesis: The performance of the Nanotite implant in this study will be no different
than or superior to that of the Osseotite implant placed during the early period of graduate
Minimum age: 18 Years.
Maximum age: N/A.
- patients of either sex and of any race, 18 years of age or older
- patients for whom a decision has already been made to use dental implants for treating
edentulism in the mandible or maxilla
- patients who are known to be pregnant
