Ninety-six partially edentulous maxillae and mandibles were consecutively treated with 127 freestanding fixed prostheses supported by 354 implants. The patients were followed for 1 year and the overall success rate was 98.6% for the examined implants. None of the inserted prostheses was lost during the observation period. The most commonly reported problems during the first year of function were related to loose gold screws and esthetic complaints, complications that were easily resolved. Furthermore, the total number of complications was low and was less than has been reported for routine full-arch fixed prostheses.
