So recently, there's been a lot of debate as to whether we should be using screw-retained restorations on our implants or cement-retained restorations. I think the trend lately toward screw-retained restorations has been driven by research that shows retained cement in that delicate sulcus around the implant is the leading cause of peri-implantitis.
Going old school and using zinc phosphate cement is great because the zinc phosphate resorbs. This way, you won't get any retained cement.
