Table 3 Horizontal initial bone thickness (BW’) and the gap distance between the extraction socket and implant (DW) at the preoperative stage

From: CBCT analysis of the tissue thickness at immediate implant placement with contour augmentation in the maxillary anterior zone: a 1-year prospective clinical study

Measurement Preoperative
Median (Min; Max) mm Mean (SD) mm
DW 1.95 (0.6; 3.0) 1.89 (0.74)
BW’ 0.60 (0; 2.0) 0.61 (0.60)
  1. DW The distance from the implant surface to the root surface, BW’ The horizontal width of the facial alveolar bone
