This clinical and radiographic prospective study evaluated bone loss around two-piece implants that were restored according to the platform-switching protocol. One hundred thirty-one implants were consecutively placed in 45 patients following a nonsubmerged surgical protocol. On 75 implants, a healing abutment 1 mm narrower than the implant platform was placed at the time of surgery. On the remaining implants, a healing abutment of the same diameter as the implant was inserted. All implants… CONTINUE READING
