OBJECTIVES: Rehabilitation with implant-supported fixed prostheses is a predictable modality to restore lost function and esthetics; however, fixed restorations are subject to biological and prosthetic complications, which may represent a problem in the long-term. The aim of this study was to evaluate the long-term survival and complication rates of fixed restorations supported by Morse-taper connection implants. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between January 1992 and December 2002, 49 patients (age range 22-70 years), were included in this study. The restorations involved 58 fixed reconstructions (15 single crowns [SCS], 29 partial prostheses, 14 full-arches), supported by 178 Morse-taper connection implants with a follow-up ranging from 10 to 20 years. Outcomes such as implant survival, marginal bone loss, frequency of biological and prosthetic complications as well as "complication-free" survival of restorations were investigated. RESULTS: The 20-year overall cumulative implant survival was 97.2%. A few biological (3.4%) and prosthetic (10.3%) complications were reported. The "complication-free" survival rate of restorations was 85.5%. No statistically significant differences were observed among patients' gender, age, smoking or parafunctional habits, prosthesis site and type.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES: Rehabilitation with implant-supported fixed prostheses is a predictable modality to restore lost function and esthetics; however, fixed restorations are subject to biological and prosthetic complications, which may represent a problem in the long-term. The aim of this study was to evaluate the long-term survival and complication rates of fixed restorations supported by Morse-taper connection implants. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Between January 1992 and December 2002, 49 patients (age range 22-70 years), were included in this study. The restorations involved 58 fixed reconstructions (15 single crowns [SCS], 29 partial prostheses, 14 full-arches), supported by 178 Morse-taper connection implants with a follow-up ranging from 10 to 20 years. Outcomes such as implant survival, marginal bone loss, frequency of biological and prosthetic complications as well as "complication-free" survival of restorations were investigated. RESULTS: The 20-year overall cumulative implant survival was 97.2%. A few biological (3.4%) and prosthetic (10.3%) complications were reported. The "complication-free" survival rate of restorations was 85.5%. No statistically significant differences were observed among patients' gender, age, smoking or parafunctional habits, prosthesis site and type.
