Improved skills, techniques and materials, case selections and proved designs have witnessed higher rates of success and survivals of osteointegration with dental implants. But prosthesis failures especially mechanical types have been constantly reported. These prostheses have been secured to the integrated implants with cement or screws. Controversies are rife in literature regarding the choice of retention. This review article provides an overview of the various clinical aspects, abutment designs and materials and procedures used, which contribute to selection of type of retention whether screw or cement and highlighting their clinical significance. The clinician can then use these information for optimizing the retention in an given clinical condition and minimize the risk of complications.
