The relationship of stress generation upon placement of cement-retained or screw-retained implant restorations has not been thoroughly investigated. Passivity of fit and marginal discrepancies of screw- and cement-retained implant fixed partial denture (FPD) designs were determined using a photoelastic model of a partially edentulous posterior mandibular arch with 3 screw-type implants. Buccal and lingual marginal openings, measured with a traveling microscope before cementation or screw tightening, revealed no statistical difference in adaptation between designs. Screw tightening caused a reduction in marginal opening (changes significant, P < .05). The opening with the cemented FPDs was similar before and after cementation. Photoelastic evaluation of the FPDs showed that cement-retained FPDs exhibited a more equitable stress distribution than did their screw-retained counterparts.
