Introduction: Nowadays, dental implants permit consideration of as one of the most reliable therapeutic modalities during the establishment of any prosthetic treatment plan. In numerous clinical situations, implants can clearly contribute to a notable simplification of therapy, frequently enabling removable prostheses to be avoided, keeping it less invasive with respect to remaining tooth structure. The aim of the present study was to clinically assess the peri-implant and periodontal conditions after the placement of crowns in partially edentulous patients. Materials and Methods: Twenty-five participants with 28 implant supported crowns were recruited in the study. After the insertion of suprastructure, meticulous scaling and root planing were performed on adjacent teeth which served as control. The clinical examination was carried out by a single examiner after placement of crowns at an interval of 1, 3, 6, 9, and 12 months and included the assessment of modified plaque index (mPlI), bleeding score, calculus score, probing pocket depth (PPD), and recession on the four aspects of each implant and adjacent teeth. Results: The mPlI, modified bleeding index (mBlI), calculus score, PPD, and recession decreased from 1 month to 12 months in both implants and in control teeth. The mean mPlI, mBlI, and calculus score were comparatively high in control teeth than implants. PPD was found to be more on implants than in control teeth. Recession was slightly higher in control teeth than implants throughout the study period, but it was not statistically significant. Conclusion: An implant patient must always be enrolled in a supportive therapy program that involves recall visits at regular intervals.
