Since the introduction of the osteointegration concept in 1985, dental implants have been used to replace missing teeth and to treat complex edentulous cases. In light of the growing number of implants that have been placed throughout the world over the last century, it is important to reflect on the long-term results of this treatment and how a variety of factors have been studied and provided to increase the survival rate over time.
In the field of dental implants, the development of different implant designs, surfaces and connections and establishment of a variety of different concepts related to the implant–abutment interface and the type of restoration are currently the most discussed topics. Furthermore, there is still significant debate in the scientific community about other factors, such as bone stability, the presence or absence of keratinized mucosa and patient-related outcomes (PROMs).
This Special Issue aims to collect research studies which discuss any aspect of dental implants, summarize the evidence of the topic and provide in vitro studies presenting innovative solutions and long-term clinical studies.
