Crestal bone and soft tissue stability around implants is an important issue in implant dentistry. Initial vertical mucosal tissue thickness was shown to be one of the factors having impact on bone stability. However, there is lack of data in the literature regarding the relationship between mucosal thickness and marginal bone loss around implants. Berglundh and Lindhe in an animal study reported that thin mucosal tissue causes significantly more crestal bone resorption around implants. In addition, clinical research regarding the effects of tissue thickness on bone and soft tissue stability around implants is lacking. The aim of this clinical study is to evaluate the influence of mucosal tissue thickness on soft and hard tissue changes around implants.
