OBJECTIVES To assess the impact of microgrooved abutments and the insertion depth on crestal bone changes at titanium implants with platform switch. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of n = 3 titanium implants (conical abutment connection) were inserted in each hemimandible of n = 6 foxhounds with the implant shoulder (IS) located at either epicrestal, supracrestal (+1 mm), or subcrestal (-1 mm) positions and randomly (split-mouth design) connected with machined or partially microgrooved healing… CONTINUE READING
