Abstract

The amount of marginal bone loss is considered an important criterion to evaluate the implant therapy outcome and to predict the prognosis of the implant rehabilitation. The purpose of this systematic review was to examine the available literature comparing clinical and radiological outcomes like the implant failure rates and marginal bone loss around platform switching dental implants versus platform matching ones. English randomized controlled human clinical trials, comparing one or more PS groups with one or more PM groups, with at least 12 months of follow-up after loading and 10 implants, providing carefully the number of PS- and PM- implants used as well as implant survival and data concerning bone level changes or marginal bone loss around implants, were included. Fifteen publications, involving a total of 1439 implants and 642 patients, were eligible. More studies showed less mean marginal bone loss around PS implants and none of them showed differences in terms of implant failure rates. This review confirmed a great effectiveness of platform switching technique to prevent marginal bone resorption. Nevertheless, this result should be interpreted cautiously because of the heterogeneity of the included studies.
