Aim: To discuss the literature pertinent to implant and prosthesis success, restorative complications, limitations of reporting on complications, and management strategies for complications of the single implant-retained crown. Materials and Methods: Literature was reviewed from PubMed, Scopus, and Google Scholar databases and included selected systematic reviews. Articles in the English language and published in peer-reviewed journals were included. Results: The accuracy of the literature reporting on implant and prosthesis success was reliant on the methodology and accuracy of measurement within individual studies. The accuracy of the literature reporting on complications suffered from variable definitions and methodologies. Conclusion: There was a comprehensive body of literature that provided a sound evidence base on implant and prosthesis success; however, the inconsistent definition of an implant complication and lack of a universally accepted system for classifying implant complications restricted the clinical application of the literature and hindered inter-study comparisons. Guidelines for managing complications, particularly restorative complications that also allow for individual patient variations, should be developed.
