Evaluations of epithelial sealing and peri-implant epithelial down-growth around "step-type" implants.

Abstract

OBJECTIVE Implant designs that can stimulate and integrate with an epithelial wound-healing process may significantly enhance the efficacy of dental implants. Here, we evaluated the potential of "step-type" implant systems to improve the sealing between the peri-implant epithelium (PIE) and the implant surface, and investigated the effect of implant… (More)
