Aim: the aim of present Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis was evaluate Residual Cement in Prosthetic Dentures Reliant on Dental Implants.

Method: From the electronic databases, PubMed, Scopus, LILACS, Web of Science, EBSCO, LIVIVO, and Embase have been used to perform a systematic literature until May 2021. Therefore, a software program (Endnote X8) has been utilized for managing the electronic titles. Effect size with 95% confidence interval (CI), fixed effect model and Inverse-variance method were calculated. Random effects were used to deal with potential heterogeneity and I2 showed heterogeneity. I2 values above 50% signified moderate-to-high heterogeneity. The Meta analysis have been evaluated with the statistical software Stata/MP v.16 (The fastest version of Stata).

Result: In the first step of selecting studies 311 studies were selected to review the abstracts, in the second step, the full text of 34 studies was reviewed, finally, six studies were selected. The Survival rates of implants was 91% (ES, 91% 95% CI = 75%-100%).  Bleeding on Probing was observed in 60% of implants with excess cement (ES, 60% 95% CI = 45%-76%) (Figure3).

Conclusion: The present study shows that residual subgingival cement contributes to the onset and progression of peri-implant mucositis. Dentists should evaluate the soft tissue parameters around the implant regularly when examining cement-repaired implants.
