We are submitting a study on a new implant system in which the surface of the implant is treated by means of a process of acid etching and chemical passivation. The fifteen patients that were included in this assay were given a total of seventy implants according to the different states and conditions of bone quality and quantity. After the first stage the results showed a success rate of 95.71%, which means that prothesis loading can be effected within a period of approximately two months, and which has led us to stablish, by way of preliminary conclusions, that this type of implant surface means that the waiting time for our patients can be reduced, and that results similar to those obtained using other, more conventional surfaces can be achieved.
