Online Article: Reattachment of Connective Tissue Fibers to a Laser-Microgrooved Abutment Surface
Nevins, Myron / Camelo, Marcelo / Nevins, Marc L. / Schupbach, Peter / Kim, David M.
This report presents human evidence of reattachment of the connective tissue when a laser-microgrooved healing abutment was replaced with a laser-microgrooved cylindric definitive abutment. No additional bone loss was noted 15 weeks after placement of the laser-microgrooved cylindric definitive abutment. Dense connective tissue was in intimate contact with the laser-microgrooved surface to the point of the soft tissue separation, and clear evidence of the junctional epithelium ending at the coronal-most position of the laser-microgrooved zone was identified.
