were attached to the implants for transmucosal healing (Figures 2 and 3).
Finally, positif Periotest measurements on single crown should be considered as normal when values on healing abutment
are between -3 and 0.
The healing abutment
was removed in attempt to identify a foreign body.
This meant that the patient had to wear complete interim removable dentures, discharged at the healing abutment
sites, for a minimum of 2 months.
Caption: Figure 1: Implant placement and ISQ measurement in a patient with partially regenerated bone (Group B): (a) a mucoperiosteal flap is raised and the partially regenerated bone is exposed; (b) the implant site is prepared in the partially regenerated bone; (c) the implant is placed in the partially regenerated bone; (d) the Smartpeg is connected for ISQ measure; (e) ISQ measure at placement; (f) since a satisfactory high primary implant stability is achieved (IT [greater than or equal to] 45 N/cm and ISQ [greater than or equal to] 60), the implant is not submerged and the transmucosal healing abutment
kit healing abutment
, healing screw 3 and 4 mm, compatible with selected implant.
On the 7 1/2th month recall, a metal healing abutment
(collar) replaced the gingival formers (Fig5) and an impression was made with Rubber base material using a two stage impression technique for final prosthesis.
