By: Dorina Lauritano, Giulia Moreo, Alberta Lucchese, Chiara Viganoni, Luisa Limongelli, Francesco Carinci
Introduction: Osseointegration are often suffering from oral conditions, especially, the micro gap at the implant–abutment connection represents a site for bacterial plaque aggregation, leading to increased inflammatory cells and causing peri-implantitis.
