PURPOSE To investigate the influence of the width of keratinized mucosa (KM) on clinical parameters around dental implants with platform switching. METHODS One hundred eighteen patients with 320 implants participated in the evaluation. The width of KM, modified sulcus bleeding index (mBI), plaque index (PLI), mucosal recession (MR), and the compliance to the implant maintenance therapy (IMT) were evaluated. RESULTS A wide band of KM (KM width ≥ 2 mm) was associated with a significant lower… CONTINUE READING
