Abstract

The 2003 implant literature was similar to literature of the preceding years. Many studies were described, and much data was presented. However, the majority of the published articles lack sufficient scientific validity to advance the established evidence base; this is primarily a problem of trial design. It is clear that implant therapy should be restoratively driven rather than surgically driven. Each patient should be carefully analyzed from the viewpoint of definitive restoration prior to surgery, and that information should then used by the surgeon to optimize implant placement. The same concept should be used in implant trials, so that the resultant data will provide the clinically relevant information.
