OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to evaluate soft tissue development at concave circular macro-grooved titanium abutments in healed sites. MATERIAL AND METHODS In a split-mouth pilot study 10 patients received two implants each at healed posterior sites in contralateral maxillary or mandibular jaw quadrants. Either circular macro-grooved concave study abutments or conventional convex control abutments were immediately provisionalized and received permanent crowns 3 months postimplantation… CONTINUE READING
