Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


One hundred seventy-eight implants from three systems were placed in 89 type II diabetic patients at 13 Department of Veterans Affairs medical centers. Four failures (2.2 percent) were found at uncovering. The failure rate increased to 7.3 percent at the end of 1 year (nine additional failures). Study patients will be monitored for an additional 4 years. Initial results suggest that type II diabetic patients can be considered for dental implant therapy.
