Background: One of the key objectives is to update knowledge in order to develop treatment and care recommendations based on research findings. The purpose of the present meta-analysis was to compare the survival rate of narrow dental implants (NDI) with standard dental implants (SDI).
   Methods: The international databases targeted for conducting a broad search included PubMed (Medline), Scopus, Web of Sciences, and Embase (Elsevier), which were searched to retrieve articles from January 1, 2000, to the end of July 2022. After the search, studies were screened based on the title, abstract, and full text, and finally, information extraction and quality assessment of the articles were performed based on the Newcastle-Ottawa Quality Assessment Scale checklist. All analyzes were conducted in STATA software Version 17.
   Results: After the screening, 8 retrospective and prospective cohort studies remained in the research for analysis. The outcomes demonstrated that the probability of healthy teeth in the 2 groups of NDI and SDI was not substantially different at least a year after implantation, and the risk ratio of tooth loss in the NDI group was comparable to that of the SDI group (RR, 1.00; 95% CI, 0.98, 1.02; I2: 28.37 %; P = 0.252). In addition, the survival rates in the 2 groups were also measured using meta-analysis and the results showed the survival rates in the 2 groups of NDI and SDI were almost equal. In the SDI group, the survival rate was equal to 94% (95% CI, 90%-98%), and in the NDI group, it was equal to 94% (95% CI, 92%- 98%).
   Conclusion: Based on the results of the present meta-analysis, the survival rates in the both NDI and SDI groups were almost equal.
