To elucidate the ultrastructure of peri-implant junctional epithelium (IJE) on single-crystal sapphire dental implants connected to the adjacent teeth by a metal superstructure, the peri-implant gingivae of ten monkeys were examined using a transmission electron microscope (TEM) at 3, 6 and 12 months after implant insertion. At the time of examination, the… CONTINUE READING
