BACKGROUND: The importance of dental implant quality register has been well‑documented.
However, no systematic review conducted on dental implant quality register can be found in the
literature. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to study the existed dental implant quality registries
to explain the goals, data elements, and reports of dental implant quality registries.
MATERIALS AND METHODS: This systematic study was conducted in PubMed, Scopus, Web
of Science, and Embase databases. For evaluating dental implant quality registers, all studies in
the English language were examined with no time limitation. Case reports, conference abstracts,
and letters to the editor were excluded. The analysis of the quality of the studies was done by the
STrengthening the Reporting of OBservational studies in Epidemiology checklist.
RESULTS: The primary search identified 5565 articles. After eliminating duplicate articles and articles
that did not meet the inclusion criteria and reviewing 40 full texts, 11 studies were included in this
study. In this review, seven countries as Sweden, the USA, Canada, Germany, Finland, Australia,
and South Korea had dental implant quality registers. Furthermore, the goals of dental implant quality
registers were classified into the categories of research, epidemiology, administrative, clinical, and
CONCLUSION: The results of this study provide dentists and other stakeholders useful information
on the existed dental implant quality registers and databases worldwide. It also provides a framework
of the goals, data elements, and reports of dental implant quality registry. The establishment of
dental implant quality register will be beneficial for societies and also allows them to control the
complications of dental implants in future.
