Purpose of the study: The presence of the dental papilla is critical to achieve an esthetic single tooth dental implant restoration. The purpose of this study are to determine if there is a difference in the papilla fill between implant and teeth comparing immediate implant placement and provisionalized single tooth implant restorations with delayed implant placement and provisionalized single tooth implant restorations.
Materials and Method: Photographic evaluation was done using Jemt index for both the groups and statistically evaluated.
Results: It was seen that there was no statistically significant difference seen in the volume of papilla between both the groups. There was a statistically significant difference seen in both the groups on the distal and mesial side from the initial stage to the follow-up period of 10 days, 3 months,and 6 months.
Conclusion: The interpretation of clinical papilla is a difficult task since many different clinical situations can be encountered while studying single-tooth implant restorations. The single-tooth restoration is a specific entity; the distance between the mesial or distal side of one implant is never the same. Therefore, the present study analysed the papilla as a unit and focused on the vertical dimensions related to the implant and adjacent teeth.
