    Objective: The objective of this retrospective study was to evaluate the success rate of AL Technology implants used for single tooth replacement after a minimum of three years of loading at Center for Dentistry, Research & Aesthetics, Jatt, Almothalat, Israel.

    Method: Dental records for 43patients who underwent single tooth replacement using ALTechnology implant system at Center for Dentistry, Research & Aesthetics, Jatt, Almothalath, Israel during a three years period (2010-2012) were retrospectively analyzed. Only implants that were functioning for at least three years were included.

    Results: 152 AL-Technology implants were used for the replacement of single teeth in 43patients, 114(75%) implants were placed in the posterior regions, and 38 (25%) implants were placed in the anterior regions. All implants were restored with cement-retained crowns and have been in function for at least three years. Out of the total 152implants, two (1,3%) were considered failures as a result of significant radiographic bone loss. Therefore, the survival rate at three years was 98,7%.

    Conclusion: The results of this study suggested that AL-Technology implants could be a satisfactory choice for anterior and posterior single tooth restorations.
