The Dental Implant Restoration Registry Study is recruiting dentists who restore implants


Consider joining the dentists who are creating the first National dental implant restoration registry funded by NIDCR. The Implant Registry study is a 3-year prospective cohort study of dental implant outcomes, beginning at prosthesis placement. The study will enroll 2,000 restored implants nationwide. In this study, providers will enroll patients receiving their prosthesis over an implant and follow them for three years. The study aims to investigate the parameters associated with the success of implant therapy, as well as the rate of prosthetic and biologic implant complications. 


  • Recruit about 10 patients who have dental implants receiving their prosthesis with up to a total of 50 restored implants 
  • Obtain informed consent from your patient, and help them complete a short web-based survey
  • Record a clinical exam in a web-based form at baseline and years 1, 2, and 3.  
  • Upload a radiography at baseline and years 1, 2, and 3 


19 years old or older, in the prosthetic phase of implant therapy, about to receive their prosthesis    


The patient will be asked to complete a web-based survey in your dental office, collecting data on their health history and their oral health and quality of life.  


  • You are a dentist providing implant therapy for patients and are interested in advancing knowledge about dental implant therapy 
  • You want to collaborate with other oral health practitioners and advance your profession
  • You will be compensated $100 per implant for the completion of the baseline data and $25 per implant for each follow-up data 
  • Your patients will be compensated $25 for completing data surveys about oral health quality of life and medical history.  
  • Earn free CE credits.

Dentists participating in the study are having a great experience: Dr. Jackson, a network member from the Southwest Node, is participating in the study. “I wanted to join the study initially because I feel like implants are a vital part of the future of dentistry”, said Dr. Jackson. “I hope that by participating in this study I can help to improve patient care by compiling data that will lead to understanding even more about implants, their complications and their successes.”

  1. I would love the opportunity to participate in the study. I am a patient in Birmingham, AL. I am scheduled to be released soon to receive a crown. However, I have had some interesting complications during the month of April that do not show up on an X-ray or CT scan. Yet, the pain is unbearable. My oral surgeon seems less than concerned. He doesn’t see any signs of an infection and doesn’t know what it could be. He sent me home with an antibiotic and a steroid. I had to call his after hours number the next day. He just didn’t know what he could do until Monday. Imagine that! Just hurt all weekend and we will look at it on Monday. That’s compassionate! I bet he would want better care for himself or his family.
    Yes, I would like to participate.

    1. Dear Amy, We are so sorry that you are going through this. The dental implant registry study is enrolling now the dentists who place crowns and dentures after the implants. Please let your dentist know about your interest in the study, and share our website. Your dentist can contact us to enroll. We hope you feel better soon!
