The dual acid-etched (DAE) implant was commercially introduced in 1996 with a hybrid design incorporating a machined surface in the coronal region from approximately the third thread to the seating surface. This design was intended to reduce the risks of peri-implantitis and other related soft tissue complications that were reported for implants with surface roughness in the coronal region. The objective of this prospective, randomized-controlled clinical trial was to determine the incidence of peri-implantitis for a fully etched implant with the DAE surface extending to the implant platform.
