OBJECTIVES. To compare crestal versus 1.5 mm subcrestal positioning of single transmu-cosal dental implants and screw-retained versus cemented crowns. MATERIALS AND METHODS. One hundred and sixty partially edentulous patients requiring one single implant-supported crown in the premolar/molar area were randomly allocated to four arms: crestal positioning and screw-retained crown (Group 1, 40 patients); crestal positioning and cement-retained crown (Group 2, 40 patients); 1.5 mm subcrestal positioning and screw-retained crown (Group 3, 40 patients); or 1.5 mm subcrestal positioning and cement-retained crown (Group 4, 40 patients) by a single operator. After an unloaded healing period of 3 months, definitive metal-ceramic crowns were delivered, and patients were followed up to 4 months after loading. Outcome measures were: crown and implant failures, complications, aesthetics assessed using the pink aesthetic score (PES), peri-implant marginal bone level changes and patient satisfaction, all recorded, when possible, by blinded assessors. RESULTS. At four months post-loading, four patients dropped out (two from Group 1 and one each from Groups 2 and 3, respectively). Two implants each failed in Groups 2 and 4, but there were no statistically significant differences between groups (P = 1.000). Complications affected four patients from Group 1, one from Group 2, two from Group 3 and six from Group 4, but between-group differences were not statistically significant (P = 0.207). The mean pink aesthetic scores were 10.30 ± 2.13 (Group 1), 10.22 ± 2.76 (Group 2), 10.47 ± 2.96 (Group 3), and 10.51 ± 2.24 (Group 4), respectively, with no statistically significant differences between groups (P = 0.9541). Likewise, there were no statistically significant differences in peri-implant marginal bone loss at 4 months after loading between groups (P = 0.9011:-0.21 mm ± 0.28 for Group 1,-0.25 mm ± 0.27 for Group 2,-0.28 mm ± 0.57 for Group 3 and-0.24 mm ± 0.26 for Group 4). Furthermore, there were no differences in patient satisfaction in terms of either function (P = 0.400) or aesthetics (P = 1.000), and all patients would undergo the same intervention again. CONCLUSIONS. No appreciable statistical or clinical differences were found between cre-stal or 1.5 mm subcrestal placement of transmucosal implants in posterior jaws or between rehabilitation with screw-retained or cement-retained crowns. However, longer follow-ups are required in order to formulate reliable clinical recommendations. CONFLICT OF INTEREST STATEMENT.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES. To compare crestal versus 1.5 mm subcrestal positioning of single transmu-cosal dental implants and screw-retained versus cemented crowns. MATERIALS AND METHODS. One hundred and sixty partially edentulous patients requiring one single implant-supported crown in the premolar/molar area were randomly allocated to four arms: crestal positioning and screw-retained crown (Group 1, 40 patients); crestal positioning and cement-retained crown (Group 2, 40 patients); 1.5 mm subcrestal positioning and screw-retained crown (Group 3, 40 patients); or 1.5 mm subcrestal positioning and cement-retained crown (Group 4, 40 patients) by a single operator. After an unloaded healing period of 3 months, definitive metal-ceramic crowns were delivered, and patients were followed up to 4 months after loading. Outcome measures were: crown and implant failures, complications, aesthetics assessed using the pink aesthetic score (PES), peri-implant marginal bone level changes and patient satisfaction, all recorded, when possible, by blinded assessors. RESULTS. At four months post-loading, four patients dropped out (two from Group 1 and one each from Groups 2 and 3, respectively). Two implants each failed in Groups 2 and 4, but there were no statistically significant differences between groups (P = 1.000). Complications affected four patients from Group 1, one from Group 2, two from Group 3 and six from Group 4, but between-group differences were not statistically significant (P = 0.207). The mean pink aesthetic scores were 10.30 ± 2.13 (Group 1), 10.22 ± 2.76 (Group 2), 10.47 ± 2.96 (Group 3), and 10.51 ± 2.24 (Group 4), respectively, with no statistically significant differences between groups (P = 0.9541). Likewise, there were no statistically significant differences in peri-implant marginal bone loss at 4 months after loading between groups (P = 0.9011:-0.21 mm ± 0.28 for Group 1,-0.25 mm ± 0.27 for Group 2,-0.28 mm ± 0.57 for Group 3 and-0.24 mm ± 0.26 for Group 4).
