Abstract

Dental implant therapy has become successful with improved surgical and prosthodontic techniques. However, most clinical trials, even though well controlled, are limited in longevity. There are few clinical reports that show long-term results with dental implants. Although there are many similarities among criteria for success in these studies, these criteria may vary from what the individual patient reports as a success. This clinical report describes the 28-year successful clinical outcome of a 62-year-old woman with dental implants supporting a mandibular screw-retained fixed dental prosthesis.
