Abstract


Occlusion is a key factor for implant success in the long run. As occlusal overload is regarded as one of the main causes of peri-implant bone loss and implant prosthesis failure. The occlusal rehabilitation schemes for implant-supported prostheses are derivatives of the occlusal scheme for natural dentition. The implant-protected occlusion (IPO) scheme has been designed to ensure the longevity of both prosthesis and implant. The article reviews the concepts of IPO and their applicability in different clinical scenarios.
