Abstract

Background: The present study considers the correlation between the meaning of keratinized mucosa (KM) and the long-term maintenance of endosseous root-form dental implants placed in fresh sockets and immediately loaded. Methods: Twenty-nine patients requiring extractions of ≥2 teeth in the maxilla and mandible were selected. One-hundred thirty-two maxillary and 32 mandibular teeth, in the incisor, canine, and premolar regions, were extracted. Implants were positioned in fresh sockets and immediately loaded. Based on the amounts of KM, implants were categorized as follows: KM ≥2 mm (group A) and KM
