One of the chronic problems with traditional cement or screw retention of crowns to implants is the development of biologic and technical complications, including soft tissue complications, bone loss, screw loosening, loss of retention, and veneering material fractures. The purpose of this case series report is to document preliminary results, specifically crown retention, using a friction-fit connection of crown to abutment. A sample composed of patients who had one or more implants restored between July 1, 2019, and October 30, 2019, were enrolled in this retrospective case-control series. Each patient had their crown connected to the implant abutment using a friction-fit system. Patients were seen for routine follow-up for documentation of crown retention, and 24 crowns were followed. After 6 months of follow-up, 100% of the crowns retained retention and did not become loose under normal masticatory function. The use of a friction-fit connection provided excellent retention of the crown to the abutment over the 6-month follow-up period.
