Soft tissue enhancement and implant placement following partial mandibulectomy due to squamous cell carcinoma

Many dental procedures allow for implant placement in partially or totally edentulous patients. Despite the availability of various implant and abutment types on the market, it often becomes quite challenging to achieve the biological and esthetic goals in a patient who has ridge deficiencies. Problems arise from the lack of adequate bone quality and quantity…

Biological width establishment around dental implants is influenced by abutment height irrespective of vertical mucosal thickness: a cluster randomized controlled trial

Prosthetic abutment height and peri‐implant mucosal thickness are con‐ sidered factors that influence marginal bone remodeling during biological width es‐ tablishment around dental implants. However, no clinical studies have evaluated their simultaneous effect on marginal bone loss (MBL).

Minimum abutment height to eliminate bone loss: influence of implant neck design and platform switching

This retrospective study quantitatively analyzed the minimum prosthetic abutment height to eliminate bone loss after 4.7-mm-diameter implant placement in maxillary bone and how grafting techniques can affect the marginal bone loss in implants placed in maxillary areas. Two different implant types with a similar neck design were singularly placed in two groups of patients.
