BACKGROUND Microbial internal contamination of oral implants has been suggested as being responsible for inflammatory infiltration of peri-implant tissues at the fixture-abutment interface of 2-stage and 2-component implant systems; it is also considered as a potential source of pathogens. The present in vivo study evaluated contamination of the inner abutment-implant retaining screw, after occlusal loading and provisionally-luted reconstruction with or without a washer device. METHODS Eight… CONTINUE READING
