Effect of connection design on the long-term implant prognosis
the last year’s implant design has developed dramatically to provide better
prognosis and superior peri-implant tissue support. what was allowed in the past as
implant survivor rate is no more accepted by the clinicians nor the patients. the
deep understanding of the bone physiology, biomechanics and the technological
development of the implant manufacturing allowed to introduce major upgrades to
the implant design to deliver a reliable treatment for our patients.
we will discuss the impact of the implant fixture-abutment connection development
and its influence on the implant positioning and the long-term implant success rate.
