OBJECTIVES The aim of this 5-year study was to longitudinally evaluate bone alterations around implants with a conical implant-abutment interface in relation to implant-tooth and inter-implant distances. MATERIAL AND METHODS The patient sample comprised 43 partially dentate patients with a total of 48 implant-supported fixed dental prostheses (FDPs) supported by 130 Astra Tech implants. Following FDP placement (baseline), the patients were enrolled in an individually designed supportive care… CONTINUE READING
