Abstract

Studies from a 10 years' period show similar percentage of surviving teeth after endodontic treatment and surviving implants: between 86 and 94 per cent with slight advantage of the implants. Esthetic problems, the time needed for implantation procedures and high costs of implant treatment make implantation less attractive and accessible. However, anatomical limitations ofmultirooted teeth, extensive periapical granulomatic lesions or considerable crown and root destruction are all indications for implant treatment. The lack of clear-cut evaluation criteria regarding both endodontic and implant treatment success makes statistic analysis impossible.
