The Effect of Crestal Versus Mucobuccal Incisions on the Success Rate of Implant Osseointegration

David R. Scharf, DMD/Dennis P. Tarnow, DDS


PMID: 8359875

A retrospective analysis compared the success rate of osseointegration of Nobelpharma implants at stage 2 surgery. The implants had been placed using either a mucobuccal fold incision or a crestal incision. A total of 386 implants was placed in 92 patients; 265 implants were placed in 60 patients using a mucobuccal fold incision, with a success rate of 98.8%, and 121 implants were placed in 32 patients using a crestal incision, with a success rate of 98.3%. Implants can be placed using either a mucobuccal fold incision or a crestal incision to achieve predictable success. (INT J ORAL MAXILLOFAC IMPLANTS 1993;8:187-l90.)

Key words: crestal incision, implant surgery, incision design, mucobuccal fold incision, osseointegration, titanium implants
