BACKGROUND The initial thickness of maxillary bone has significant impact on the responding level of facial bone and soft tissue after extraction and immediate implant placement. A prevailing notion is that following implant placement in fresh extraction sites, at least 2 mm of facial bone is needed to prevent soft tissue recession, fenestration, and dehiscence. PURPOSE The purpose of this study was to use cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) to measure horizontal width of facial alveolar… CONTINUE READING
