To evaluate long-term clinical outcome of implant-supported fixed prosthesis with the guidance of computer-aided design/computer-aided manufacturing (CAD/CAM) surgical template in old patients. Fifteen 50-67(58.6±5.3) year-old patients (11 males and 4 females) who received the digital implant surgery with the guidance of CAD/CAM surgical template and implant-supported fixed prosthesis in Department of Oral Implantology, Yantai Stomatological Hospital Affiliated to Binzhou Medical College from August, 2013 to Janurary, 2016 were included. There are 15 edentulous maxillas, 8 edentulous mandibles on which 145 implants were placed in total. After the placement of implant, the accuracy of CAD/CAM surgical template was assessed by comparing the post-operative 3-dimensional location of implant with the pre-operative design. The 5-year survival rate of implant and prosthesis was recorded, and marginal bone loss around implants and the development of complication were evaluated by radiological and clinical examination respectively. The result on accuracy of CAD/CAM surgical template showed that deviations in neck and apex of implants were (0.78±0.59) and (1.38±0.63) mm respectively, depth deviation was (0.65±0.35) mm and angle deviation was 4.12°±2.77°. The 5-year cumulative survival rate of implants was 98.6%(143/145). In all 145 implants, the prevalence of implant-related biological complication was 4.1%(6/145). The prosthesis-related mechanical complication rate was 57%(13/23). After 5-year function, mean peri-implant bone loss was (0.69±0.35) mm. This 5-year follow-up retrospective study showed that implant-supported fixed prosthesis with the guidance of CAD/CAM surgical template in middle aged and elderly patients could achieve good long-term clinical outcome and patient satisfaction.
