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… 
Implant and prosthodontic survival rates with implant fixed complete dental prostheses in the edentulous mandible after at least 5 years: a systematic review.
Treatment with mandibular IFCDPs yields high implant and prosthodontic survival rates (more than 96% after 10 years) and rough surface implants exhibited cumulative survival rates similar to the smooth surface ones in the edentulous mandible.
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.
The current use of patient-centered/reported outcomes in implant dentistry: a systematic review.
There is an urgent need for standardized reporting of PROMs in the field of implant dentistry, and there is plenty of evidence from well-controlled studies showing that fully edentulous patients in the mandible experience higher satisfaction with an IOD when compared to a conventional denture.
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.
Radiographic Investigation of the Marginal Bone Loss on Dental Implants : A Retrospective Cohort Study
It can be concluded that deviations in the morphologic attributes of these two diverse implant systems had an influence on the health of surrounding tissues and MBL.
Immediate implant placement and provisionalisation in the aesthetic zone.
It can be concluded that immediate placement of implants followed by immediate provisionalisation resulted in a high survival rate, minimum peri-implant bone loss, very good aesthetics and satisfied patients after a mean follow-up period of 4 years.


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.
