ABSTRACT

The success of an implant restoration is based on integration of hard and soft tissue with the implant abutment surface. It has been established that soft tissue maintenance has a direct effect on the hard tissue around the implant further adding on to the esthetics of the implant prosthesis. When a prosthetic abutment is connected to an implant body, a microgap is created between the components. Microorganisms may grow into this implant-abutment interface microgap (IAI).[1,2] and establishes a bacterial reservoir resulting in an area of inflamed soft tissue facing the IAI.[3] The presence of this microgap in close relation to bone may thus have a role in the development of peri-implant inflammation and bone loss.[4,5] Therefore a major challenge is to minimize inflammatory reactions and percolation into this IAI thus maximizing the implant stability which inturn enhances the esthetics. It has been established that treating the implant surface can reduce this microgap,[6] but fewer studies have been conducted on the effect of a treated abutment surface. The Laser lok implant technology aims to address to this need. This implant abutment system is specially designed to reduce the microgap and create a tight lock between implant and soft tissue hence leading to better esthetics. This study aimed to establish the effect of Laser Lok abutment on maintaining the soft and hard tissue around implant hence leading to better esthetics. In the study implants were restored with Laser Lok abutment and esthetic score was compared at 3, 6 months. Pink and white esthetic score used as a measuring aid.
