Research shows an exaggerated bone loss adjacent to installed implants during the healing period. This phenomenon may continue later along the years in a slower rate. Sometimes, there is even an acceleration of the phenomenon during the years. The presented implant was designed to restore short-term bone loss caused during the healing phase and to slow and even prevent long-term bone loss. The result is achieved by emitting at the bone, mainly, compressive stress vectors that are essential for improved mechanical bone adaptation, including organization of bone into load-bearing type and modeling of the bone by enlarging its volume. This case report shows how a nonfunctional bone architecture turns into a load-bearing type and how initial bone loss may be restored after implant loading.
