Influence of the implant-abutment connection on the ratio between height and thickness of tissues at the buccal zenith: a randomized controlled trial on 188 implants placed in 104 patients.

BMC Oral Health 2020 02 17;20(1):53. Epub 2020 Feb 17.

Fondazione IRCCS Cà Granda Ospedale Maggiore Policlinico, Department of Orthodontics, School of Dentistry, Milan, Italy.

Background: To compare tissue response to two implant systems, featuring internal hexed connections with different designs.

Methods: Patients enrolled in this randomized controlled trial were assigned to two groups. In Group 1, patients were treated with implants with a 5° conical internal hexed connection (Anyridge®, MegaGen, South Korea). Read More

Ratio between Height and Thickness of the Buccal Tissues: A Pilot Study on 32 Single Implants.

Dent J (Basel) 2019 Apr 2;7(2). Epub 2019 Apr 2.

Department of Orthodontics, School of Dentistry, University of Milan, Via Commenda 10, 20154 Milan, Italy.

Background: Previous studies have suggested that mucosal height is related to the bone level and soft tissue thickness. The purpose of this pilot study was to investigate the ratio between the height and width of the tissues around single implants with a conical connection and platform switching.

Methods: All patients receiving single implants (Anyridge, MegaGen, Gyeongbuk, South Korea) and restored with single crowns, in a three-month period, were included in this study. Read More

Evaluation of concordance between CAD/CAM and clinical positions of abutment shoulder against mucosal margin: an observational study.

BMC Oral Health 2018 05 2;18(1):73. Epub 2018 May 2.

Private Dental Practice, Białystok, Poland.

Background: While working on CAD/CAM-customized abutments, the use of standard impression copings with a circular diameter produces inconsistency within the emergence profile. It may begin with a collapse of the supra-implant mucosa during impression taking, then lead to a computer-generated mismatch of the position and outline of the abutment shoulder, and consequently result in a compromised outcome of anticipated treatment. The aim of the study was to compare the virtual and clinical positions of the abutment shoulder in relation to the mucosal margin after the abutment delivery. Read More

A digital approach for one-step formation of the supra-implant emergence profile with an individualized CAD/CAM healing abutment.

J Prosthodont Res 2016 Jul 9;60(3):220-3. Epub 2016 Feb 9.

Department of Reconstructive Dentistry & Gerodontology, School of Dental Medicine, University of Bern, Switzerland.

Purpose: This Technical Procedure describes a novel workflow for a one-step formation of the supra-implant emergence profile in the esthetic zone - the 'Digitally Flip Technique' (DFT).

Methods: After implant placement, a post-operative intra-oral optical scan (IOS) was performed to capture the final three-dimensional implant position. Based on the superimposition of the digitally slice-wise DICOM-segmentation of the digitally flipped (mirrored) contra-lateral tooth and the STL-file of the IOS, an individualized healing abutment was CAD/CAM-fabricated out of PMMA-based restoration material in a fully digital workflow and seated at the stage of reopening surgery.

Digital implant impressions with the "Individualized Scanbody Technique" for emergence profile support.

Clin Oral Implants Res 2014 Mar 4;25(3):395-397. Epub 2013 Jan 4.

Division of Fixed Prosthodontics, School of Dental Medicine, University of Bern, Bern, Switzerland.

Objective: The Short Communication presents a clinical case in which a novel procedure--the "Individualized Scanbody Technique" (IST)--was applied, starting with an intraoral digital impression and using CAD/CAM process for fabrication of ceramic reconstructions in bone level implants.

Material And Methods: A standardized scanbody was individually modified in accordance with the created emergence profile of the provisional implant-supported restoration. Due to the specific adaptation of the scanbody, the conditioned supra-implant soft tissue complex was stabilized for the intraoral optical scan process. Read More

Oral mucosa tissue response to titanium cover screws.

J Periodontol 2012 Aug 5;83(8):973-80. Epub 2011 Dec 5.

Department of Oral Pathology, School of Dentistry, University of Buenos Aires, Buenos Aires, Argentina.

Background: Titanium is the most widely used metal in dental implantology. The release of particles from metal structures into the biologic milieu may be the result of electrochemical processes (corrosion) and/or mechanical disruption during insertion, abutment connection, or removal of failing implants. The aim of the present study is to evaluate tissue response of human oral mucosa adjacent to titanium cover screws. Read More

The level of buccal gingival margin around single and two adjacent implant restorations: a preliminary result.

J Adv Prosthodont 2009 Nov 30;1(3):140-4. Epub 2009 Nov 30.

Former Graduate Student, Department of Prosthodontics, Yonsei University Dental Hospital, College of Dentistry, Yonsei University, Seoul, Korea.

Statement Of Problem: Little information is available about the buccal gingival level of multiple implant restorations.

Purpose: This study was aimed to evaluate the relationship between width and height of buccal soft tissue around single and 2 adjacent implant restorations.

Material And Methods: Four implant restoration groups (first and second molars, single second molars, posterior single restorations between teeth, and anterior single restorations between teeth) were randomly chosen from one dental institute. Read More

Biologic height-width ratio of the buccal supra-implant mucosa.

Eur J Esthet Dent 2006 ;1(3):208-14

Recently, esthetic implant dentistry has focused on changes in buccal implant mucosal height. The purpose of this article was to investigate the relationship between the height and width of buccal supra-implant mucosa based on the physiologic mucosal form surrounding the implant. Fourteen patients who had buccal supra-implant mucosal heights of more than 1. Read More
