    Notes: summary Patients treated at a prosthodontic department during the years 1968–73 with fixed restorations (at least five units) were followed up in 1991–92. The aim of the present study was to compare marginal and periapical periodontal conditions on radiographs from 1968–73 and 1991–92 and relate the changes to the results of the prosthodontic treatment. In the group in which the restorations remained unchanged, 90% of the abutments that were not root filled and showed no periapical radiolucency when the restorations were placed, were still not root filled and showed no periapical radiolucency at the follow-up examination. The corresponding figure for the group in which the restorations had been replaced was only 69%. The changes in marginal bone levels also differed between the groups. In the group with remaining restorations, 66% of the surfaces were given the same score on a five-point scale both in 1968–73 and in 1991–92. In the other group, only 54% were scored the same on both occasions. Thus, unfavourable changes in both periapical and marginal periodontal conditions were associated with poorer results for the fixed restorations.

    Notes: There is a methodological problem in analysis of data belonging to different hierarchical levels, e.g. patient, arch, and tooth. A method for multilevel modelling (MLM) that resolves this problem is available. This method which is presented in this article, was used to reanalyse previously published long-term treatment results concerning the longevity of fixed partial dentures, retainers and abutments. The main results were consistent, indicating that no great faults were committed when using the conventional logistic regression method. There were, however, differences when calculating the combined risks for various situations. The conventional method was found to over- and underestimate probabilities of survival in different cases, compared to the MLM method. Especially when the most negative factors were combined, the conventional method had a tendency to underestimate the risk. For example, if an abutment had the combination ‘endodontically treated’;‘FPD placed by ‘another dentist’’;‘distal abutment’; and ‘marginal bone loss 〉 50%’; the probability of the tooth remaining after 18–23 years was only 20% according to the MLM method but 35% according to the conventional method. It was concluded that MLM is the method of choice for many situations in dental research where data belonging to different levels are to be analysed.

    Notes: A single tooth implant was placed in a boy aged 12 years and 3 months. The case has been followed for more than 4.5 years. The fixture did not move together with the adjacent teeth as the maxillary growth went on. There was no “loss” of marginal bone on the side of one adjacent tooth where the distance between implant and tooth was appropriate. But a “loss” of marginal bone (measured from the cemento-enamel junction) was noted on the other adjacent tooth where the fixture had been placed 1 too close to the tooth.
