BACKGROUND With the increased use of short dental implants (<10 mm), a high crown/implant (C/I) ratio has become a common finding. However, the effect of the C/I ratio on the marginal bone loss (MBL) has not yet been examined extensively. Hence, the aim of the present systematic review is to explore the influence of the C/I ratio on the success rate and MBL of dental implants. METHODS Three electronic databases (PubMed, Ovid MEDLINE, and Cochrane Central) and a manual search for human trials… CONTINUE READING
