AbstractBackground-The long-term survival of dental implants is evaluated by the amount of crestal bone loss around the implants. Many possible etiologies of early crestal bone loss around implants including surgical trauma, occlusal overload, periimplantitis, the presence of microgap, reformation of biologic width, implant crest module, and others have been proposed. However, the location of dental implants, whether subcrestal or equicrestal, is still becoming increasing importance for researchers.
Materials & Method- A total of 20 implants were placed (10 dental implants per group, Group I-Equicrestal and Group II- 1mm Subcrestal) in subjects requiring placement of mandibular teeth. Patient was then recalled for follow up for radiographic evaluation which was made at 1 month and 3 months of implant loading for evaluation of crestal bone changes with the help of radiographs.
Result- The results says that crestal bone loss around implants which are placed equicrestal led to lesser bone loss when compared to implants which are placed subcrestal after loading and patient’s perception of pain was lesser in the equicrestal implants as compared to subcrestal implants.
