The aim of this work is to evaluate the importance of the platform switching and of new implant surfaces to decrease marginal bone resorption and to avoid complications. The use of available prosthetic components led to a mismatch between the diameters of the implants and the prosthetic abutments. This mismatch was termed platform switching. This study has focused on radiographic observation of the crestal bone level around implants restored with platform switching comparing them to rehabilitation with implant/abutment switched diameters. Different titanium surface preparations have been compared too. Also the behavior of dental implants is significantly influenced by the surface characteristics of the implants. Microstructured and bioactive surfaces show higher bone contact values and therefore lead to an improved osseointegration, reducing healing time too. Implants with platform switching could avoid complications and enhance osseointegration success rate limiting alveolar crestal bone remodeling and resorption at the abutment/implant interface.
