Dental implants are intended for surgical placement in maxillary and/or mandibular arches to provide support for prosthetic restorations in edentulous or partially edentulous patients. Dental implants are for single-stage or two-stage surgery. Dental implants are intended for immediate placement and function on single-tooth and/or multiple tooth applications when good primary stability is achieved, with appropriate occlusal loading, in order to restore chewing function. Multiple tooth applications may be rigidly splinted. In the case of edentulous patients, four or more implants must be used
