    Objectives: The aims of this study were to (1) compare prospectively the clinical and radiographic changes in periodontal and peri-implant conditions, (2) investigate the association of changes in periodontal parameters and peri-implant conditions over a mean observation period of 10 years (8-12 years) after implant installation, and (3) evaluate patient risk factors known to aggravate the periodontal conditions for their potential influence on the peri-implant tissue status.Materials and methods: Eighty-nine partially edentulous patients with a mean age of 58.9 years (28-88 years) were examined at 1 and 10 years after implant placement. The patients contributed with 179 implants that were placed after comprehensive periodontal treatment and restored with crowns or fixed partial dentures. One hundred and seventy-nine matching control teeth were chosen as controls. Also, the remaining teeth (n=1770) in the dentitions were evaluated. Data on smoking habits and general health aspects were collected at 1 and 10 years as well.Results: At 10 years, statistically significant differences existed between implants and matching control teeth with regard to most of the clinical and radiographic parameters (P
