Table 2 Peri-implant marginal bone loss over a 1-year period

From: Single-crown restorations supported by short implants (6 mm) compared with standard-length implants (13 mm) in conjunction with maxillary sinus floor augmentation: a randomized, controlled clinical trial

PIMBL Short implant Mean (SD) Standard length implant and maxillary sinus floor augmentation Mean (SD) p* value
IP–baseline 0.32 (0.15) 0.25 (0.12) 0.16
IP–1 year 0.60 (0.17) 0.51 (0.14) 0.09
Baseline–1 year 0.28 (0.17) 0.26 (0.14) 0.64
