The effect of internal versus external abutment connection modes on crestal bone changes around dental implants: a radiographic analysis.


BACKGROUND To the best of our knowledge, the influence of external versus internal implant-abutment connections on crestal bone remodeling has not been reported. The aim of the present study is to investigate the influence of the abutment connection on peri-implant crestal bone levels (CBLs) using radiographic recordings. METHODS Radiographic recordings… (More)
