OBJECTIVE To determine the relationship between buccal bone and soft tissue thickness at teeth in the premaxilla by means of non-invasive registration methods. MATERIALS AND METHODS Buccal bone thickness at central incisors, lateral incisors and canines was measured at five reference points (1-5 mm from the top of the alveolar crest) on CB-CT scans of 21 patients. The corresponding buccal gingival thickness was measured by the use of an ultrasonic device. Spearman's correlation coefficient… CONTINUE READING
