Introduction. The aim of this study was to report the outcome of treatment with dental implants inserted in different clinical situations with use of biomaterial of bone regeneration. Methods. 43 patients with tooth loss were treated with 171 Microdent®. In all cases, beta-tricalcium phosphate KeraOs® were used. Implants were loaded after a healing free-loading period of 6 months. Results. Clinical results indicate a survival and success rate of implants of 98,8%. 2 implants were lost during the healing period. After a functioning period of 12 months, no late complications were reported. 54% of implant-supported prostheses were fixed bridges; 28% were single crowns; 14% were fixed rehabilitations and 4% were overdentures. Conclusions.This study indicate that beta-tricalcium phosphate can be used with success as biomaterial of bone regeneration in treatment with dental implants.
