Sailer, Irena; Mühlemann, Sven; Kohal, Ralf J; Spies, Benedikt C; Pjetursson, Bjarni E; Lang, Niklaus P; Gotfredsen, Klaus L; Ellingsen, Jan E; Francisco, Helena; Özcan, Mutlu; Hassan, Bassam; Pardo, Guillem E; Bardaji, Javier A; Kraus, Riccardo D; Wennerberg, Ann (2018). Reconstructive aspects: Summary and consensus statements of group 3. The 5 EAO Consensus Conference 2018. Clinical Oral Implants Research, 29 Suppl:237-242.

Abstract

OBJECTIVES The tasks of this working group were to evaluate the existing evidence on the efficiency and efficacy of the digital and conventional workflows for the fabrication of fixed implant reconstructions, to assess the performance of all-ceramic fixed implant reconstructions and, finally, to evaluate the outcomes of internally and externally connected implant abutments and reconstructions. METHODS Four reviews were available analyzing the current literature on the respective topics. One review dealt with the efficiency and efficacy of digital and conventional fabrication workflows. Two reviews analyzed the outcomes of all-ceramic fixed implant reconstructions, one focusing on single-implant reconstructions and the other evaluating multiple-unit implant fixed dental prostheses (FDPs). The fourth review evaluated the clinical outcome on external, respectively, internal implant-abutment connections. These reviews were the basis for the discussions within the group and at the plenary sessions. RESULTS The present consensus report gives the consensus statements, the clinical recommendations, and the implications for future research as discussed and approved by the plenum of the consensus conference. The four manuscripts by Mühlemann et al., Rabel et al., Pieralli et al., and Pjetursson et al. are published as part of the journal supplement of the present EAO consensus conference.
