Abstract


Introduction: the purpose of this study was to evaluate position change of the soft tissues surrounding double-stage surgery short implants six months after restoration with individual crowns extra-orally cemented. Methods: clinical and radiographic measurements were made on metal-ceramic single restorations in 22 patients, supported by Bicon® short implants (30 implants in total), at the time of installing the restoration and 6 months after load. The clinical distances measured were: gingival margin-incisal border (GM–IB), papillary vertex-mesial contact point (PV-MCP), papillary vertex-distal contact point (PV–DCP), papillary vertex-incisomesial angle (PV-IMA), papillary vertex-incisodistal angle (PV-IDA), gingival margin-mucogingival line (GM-MGL), and the radiographic distances measured were: bone ridge-mesial contact point (BR-MCP), and bone ridge–distal contact point (BR-DCP). Results: no statistically significant differences were found in the aforementioned variables, except for the PV–DCP distance which measured 2.55 mm at the time of installation and 1.49 mm six months afterwards, considered as a statistically significant difference (p = 0.003). Conclusion: the results show a stable behavior of soft tissue and bone support around the implants, with a favorable change in the position of the papillae and a slight apically modification in the position of gingival margin.
