The purpose of this study was to examine the most frequently used criteria to define treatment success in implant dentistry. An electronic MEDLINE/PubMED search was conducted to identify randomized controlled trials and prospective studies reporting on outcomes of implant dentistry. Only studies conducted with roughened surface implants and at least five-year follow-up were included. Data were analyzed for success at the implant level, peri-implant soft tissue, prosthetics, and patient… 
Success of dental implants in patients with large bone defect and analysis of risk factors for implant failure: a non-randomized retrospective cohort study.
Male sex, shorter or narrow implants, and bone augmentation were independent risk factors for dental implants used in dentomaxillary prostheses in patients with large bone defects, and Clinicians should consider these risk factors.
Early marginal bone loss around dental implants to define success in implant dentistry: A retrospective study.
PURPOSE The aim of this study was to establish an objective criterion in terms of marginal bone level (MBL) to know the prognosis of an implant. MATERIALS AND METHODS A group of 176 patients in
Patient-reported outcome measures following soft-tissue grafting at implant sites: A systematic review.
Soft tissue grafting can enhance patient satisfaction and aesthetic evaluation compared to non-grafted sites and most of the studies did not find significant differences in terms of patient morbidity and painkillers between autogenous grafts and substitutes.
A Systematic Review of Outcomes Following Immediate Molar Implant Placement Based on Recently Published Studies.
A systematic review and meta-analysis of outcomes from recent clinical studies with immediate molar implants suggests that there may be an optimal diameter for this implant application.
Long-Term Treatment Outcomes of Implant Prostheses in Partially and Totally Edentulous Patients
Dental implants inserted in both the maxillary and mandibular areas produce long-term favorable outcomes and stable tissue conditions when a delayed loading protocol is followed.
Comparing success of immediate versus delay loading of implants in fresh sockets: a systematic review and meta-analysis
Based on the results of this study, immediate loading of dental implant, under certain conditions, is a successful treatment process and is effective in reducing treatment time, and represents a valid alternative to the traditional delayed loading rehabilitation.
Influence of low-level laser therapy on implant stability in implants placed in healed sites: a randomized controlled trial
LLLT did not influence the implant stability in implants placed in healed sites compared to a control group and no differences were observed when LLLT and control groups were compared with ISQ difference or radiographical peri-implant alterations.


Usefulness of the aesthetic result as a success criterion for implant therapy: a review.
There appears to be a growing interest in aesthetics in dental implantology, and further research is necessary to establish a common, complete, and reproducible index for the evaluation of aesthetic outcome that can add in the success criteria for implant therapy in the maxillary and mandibular anterior areas.
Comparison of dental implant systems: quality of clinical evidence and prediction of 5-year survival.
Implant-supported single-tooth restorations: a 5-year prospective study.
The present clinical trial on single-tooth replacements with the Astra Tech implant system demonstrated that the bone loss during the first year of function as well as annually thereafter was small.
Implant success, survival, and failure: the International Congress of Oral Implantologists (ICOI) Pisa Consensus Conference.
A few indices developed for natural teeth are used as an index that is specific for endosteal root-form implants, intended to update and upgrade what is purported to be implant success, implant survival, and implant failure.
A 5-year prospective clinical and radiographic study of non-submerged dental implants.
Low levels of correlation between the individual and cumulative clinical parameters with radiographically measured bone loss suggests that these parameters are of limited clinical value in assessing and predicting future peri-implant bone loss.
A 5-year prospective study of single-tooth replacements supported by the Astra Tech implant: a pilot study.

Implant-supported single-tooth replacement with the Astra Tech system is a reliable treatment resulting in a good 5-year prognosis and only few complications and this was not reflected in patients' satisfaction with aesthetic appearance.
A 10-year prospective study of ITI dental implants placed in the posterior region. I: Clinical and radiographic results.
ITI dental implants placed in the posterior jaw demonstrate excellent long-term clinical success and Recession depth and attachment levels appear to be good clinical indicators of peri-implant bone loss.
Loading protocols for dental implants in edentulous patients.
This systematic review of implant-supported rehabilitations for the edentulous mandible and maxilla found the highest level of scientific and clinical validation was found for conventional loading with mandibular overdentures and maxillary fixed dental prostheses.
A 10-year follow-up study of titanium dioxide-blasted implants.
This study showed that titanium dioxide-blasted implants offer predictable long-term results as supports for fixed prostheses in both the maxilla and mandible.
Five- to six-year results of a prospective clinical trial using the ENDOPORE dental implant and a mandibular overdenture.
Results provide clear evidence that Endopore implants despite their short lengths function at least as well as other dental implant designs used in much longer lengths.
