Abstract This paper reports on 10 years of clinical experience with implant prosthodontic treatment of total edentulism. During this period, of the 735 implants that were inserted, only 19 were lost, a 97.4\% success rate. The authors believe that evaluating the success of implant treatment requires examining the health of the peripilastrium with periodontologic methods. The indices the authors used for such an evaluation were plaque accumulation, crevicular fluid flow rate, and sulcus bleeding; crevicular fluid flow proved the most satisfactory for estimating the health of peri-implant tissues. The results demonstrate that peri-implant-tissue health is similar to that of the tissues surrounding nontreated natural teeth and better than that of the tissues surrounding natural teeth wearing crowns.
