Impact of implant-abutment connection and positioning of the machined collar/microgap on crestal bone level changes: a systematic review.

Schwarz F, Hegewald A, Becker J - Clin Oral Implants Res (2013)

Bottom Line: Only two studies compared different implant-abutment configurations.Due to a high heterogeneity, a meta-analysis was not feasible.While the positioning of the machined neck and microgap may limit crestal bone level changes at nonsubmerged implants, the impact of the implant-abutment connection lacks documentation.
