Immediate labial contour restoration for improved esthetics: a radiographic study on bone splitting in anterior single-tooth replacement.


A bone-splitting technique used for anterior single-tooth replacement was evaluated in 54 patients and 68 sites. The cumulative rate of implant survival was 93.7% (SE 4.6%) after more than 4 years. The decrease in marginal bone height ranged from 0.8 to 1.3 mm. Some reaction of the bone levels around the adjacent teeth should be anticipated (0.3 to 0.5 mm… (More)
