BACKGROUND AND AIM: Bacteria colonization is the main cause of periodontal diseases and may be effected by ABO blood types. Since implant survival is severely reduced by peri-implant disease, this study aimed to evaluate the marginal bone resorption levels and survival rates of implants which were followed for 1-8 years and analyze these values with respect to demographic data and blood types.
