Abstract

 &ndsp;Implanantoplasty is a decontamination technique on the surface of the implant, realized to prevent periiimplantitis recurrence. The strength of the implants is a relevant factor for the success of the treatment. The aim of this systematic review was to evaluate the effect of implantoplasty on the fracture resistance of dental implants. A comprehensive search was performed in the Medline via PubMed, Scopus, Web of Science, LILACS, BBO and Cochrane Library and SIGLE without restrictions. The annual conference of the IADR abstracts (1990 - 2016), and unpublished and ongoing trials registry were also searched. Dissertations and theses were searched using the ProQuest Dissertations and Periodicals Capes Theses Databases. We included in vitro studies that evaluated the effect of implantoplasty on the fracture resistance of dental implants. After the removal of duplicates, 151 articles remained. After the reading of the titles and abstracts, seven articles remained. Four articles were still excluded, totalling three articles for the systematic review and for the meta-analysis. There was no significant difference in fracture resistance of titanium dental implants when submitted to implantoplasty procedure (p = 0.69). It was concluded that implantoplasty does not reduce the fracture resistance of dental implants. However, further studies are needed to clarify the safety and long-term prognosis of the implantoplasty procedure.
