In an uncontrolled retrospective recall study of 57 patients treated with conical crown retained dentures, 60 restorations (37 in the maxillae and 23 in the mandible jaw) with a mean wearing time of 30.1 months (range 4 to 76) were evaluated. Of the 248 abutments, eight (3.2%) had been lost. Clinically healthy mucosa was seen in 35 jaws. The marginal fit of the copings was judged to be good. No caries or new restorations were observed in 44 patients. Thirteen patients had 19 surfaces with new restorations and 20 surfaces with caries lesions. Of these 39 surfaces, 38 were located subgingivally.
