This study proposed a protocol of prognostic evaluation system for the purpose of improving the quality of implant technology. Cases were divided into tumor and non-tumor cases according to the criteria proposed by Katagiri (2002). The biopsy factor / five items (B1 to B5) shown below were extracted, and each item was scored on a four-point scale (0 to 3) and evaluated. B1: Presence or absence of peri-implant inflammation (nonspecific reaction), and the severity B2: Presence or absence of
