Soft Tissue Thickness on Submerged and Non Submerged Implants

2016-07-26 03:06:34 | BioPortfolio


Changes in the marginal bone level surrounding the implant are the frequently used parameters in assessing the short- and long-term success. Multiple biological and biomechanical factors have been reported to adversely affect marginal bone level. Recently, initial vertical mucosal tissue thickness has also been reported to have an impact on bone stability.The hypothesis of present study is that soft tissue thickness on implant placement has no positive impact of crestal bone remodeling.


The aim of this study is to evaluate the clinical and radiographical results of submerged and nonsubmerged implants with thin (<3 mm) and thick (>3 mm) soft tissue over 1.5 year after implant placement. All submerged and nonsubmerged implants were randomly placed as split-mouth. Clinical periodontal parameters were recorded. Crestal bone levels were analyzed from the day of implants inserted to 1.5 year after prosthetic loading on digitally standardized radiographs. Non-parametric test were used for statistically analysis.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

The pathologic wearing away of the tooth substance by brushing, bruxism, clenching, and other mechanical causes. It is differentiated from TOOTH ATTRITION in that this type of wearing away is the result of tooth-to-tooth contact, as in mastication, occurring only on the occlusal, incisal, and proximal surfaces. It differs also from TOOTH EROSION, the progressive loss of the hard substance of a tooth by chemical processes not involving bacterial action. (From Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p2)

The wearing away of a tooth as a result of tooth-to-tooth contact, as in mastication, occurring only on the occlusal, incisal, and proximal surfaces. It is chiefly associated with aging. It is differentiated from TOOTH ABRASION (the pathologic wearing away of the tooth substance by friction, as brushing, bruxism, clenching, and other mechanical causes) and from TOOTH EROSION (the loss of substance caused by chemical action without bacterial action). (Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p86)

A tooth's loss of minerals, such as calcium in hydroxyapatite from the tooth matrix, caused by acidic exposure. An example of the occurrence of demineralization is in the formation of dental caries.

Loss of the tooth substance by chemical or mechanical processes

Horizontal and, to a lesser degree, axial movement of a tooth in response to normal forces, as in occlusion. It refers also to the movability of a tooth resulting from loss of all or a portion of its attachment and supportive apparatus, as seen in periodontitis, occlusal trauma, and periodontosis. (From Jablonski, Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p507 & Boucher's Clinical Dental Terminology, 4th ed, p313)
