Cementing implant restorations - end of the journey or the start of further problems?

In the early days most implant restorations were screw-retained, but during the 1990s cement retention became more common. Though it is possible to retain every implant restoration by a screw of some sort, there are many reasons why cement retention might be indicated. However, there are some potential pitfalls with cementing and clear protocols need to be followed both in the dialogue with dental technicians and in the cementation procedures themselves. This presentation will outline the most important factors.
