  Outcome Measures

1.  Primary:   Soft Tissue Thickness Over the Implant   [ Time Frame: 1 year ]

  Serious Adverse Events

  Other Adverse Events

  Limitations and Caveats

Limitations of the study, such as early termination leading to small numbers of participants analyzed and technical problems with measurement leading to unreliable or uninterpretable data
There were no adverse events. There were 2 cases of implant mobility and these was treated as a potential expected complication and handled with routine clinical practice guidelines.
