Abstract: Objectives Implantoplasty (IP) is a treatment option for peri‐implantitis. Mechanical concerns were raised on fracture resistance of implants subjected to this procedure. This study aimed to compare two methods of IP in terms of implant wear and fracture resistance, and of surface topography. Material and methods Eighteen cylindrical screw‐shaped dental implants (4 mm diameter, 13 mm length) with an external hexagonal connection were used. IP was performed on the first 6‐mm implant surface with a sequence of b… Show more
