Abstract

 &ndsp;With the use of an implant in dentistry, new treatment planning has emerged as an alternative to traditional treatment methods in many cases, from single missing tooth to complete edentulous archs. Besides this, the use of short implants has become popular due to the inadequate amount and quality of bone in some cases and the position of anatomical formations that are not allowing the implant placement to the desired length. There are studies that claims the use of short length implants showed high success rates with the provision of osseointegration. On the other hand, there are also researchers who think that the use of short implants will have a negative impact on success due to the use of restorations with a high crown to implant ratio. It is thought that the crown to implant ratio differs from the crown to root ratio of natural tooth because of the absence of the periodontal ligament of the implant and the attachment to the bone via osseointegration. For this reason it is not possible to say a constant and clear ideal crown to implant ratio. There are studies that attempt to determine the safe range of this ratio by examining the relationship between the ratio of crown to implant and implant failure, marginal bone loss, survival rate and connection design.

Keywords: Crown to Implant Ratio; Implant Survival Rate; Crown Heigth Space; Marginal Bone Loss; Connection Design
