Tilted implants to support fixed partial dentures


This review of marginal bone loss and implant survival rate of tilted implants compared with those of axial implants for implant-supported fixed partial dentures (ISFPDs) included 9 studies. The findings suggest no different in survival rates between the two implant types but the possibility of more marginal bone loss with tilted implants.The quality of evidence is low.
