Introduction. Endodontic implants are used to ratain teeth with periodontal bone resorption and/or short roots. The implants are placed from inside of root canal passing the apex into the periapical bone. Teeth with horizontal root fracture. Clinically mobile teeth, teeth with periodontal bone resorption, teeth with reduced root / crown ratio. Anatomic considerations around the root apex.
Methods: After case selection, twenty five endodontic implants were placed in selected teeth. The cromcobalt and/or titanium implants were placed using Frank";s method.
Results. After three years of radiographic evaluation, 3 of the cases failed and the rest of the samples were completely normal. The success rate was 88 percent.
Discussion. Endodontic implants allow us to treat teeth with mobility due to root fracture, bone resorption, of reduced crown / root ratio. The success rate in this investigation was 88 percent which was comparable to 91 percent success rate in the similar research. Regarding the success rate of investigations of endo implants, this method is a acceptable preventive treatment to retain mobile teeth.
