Table 2 Mean diameters for the different types of implant design measured at the center of the surface over which implantoplasty was performed

From: Effect of implantoplasty on the elastic limit of dental implants of different diameters

   Diameter of the implant at the mid-zone of the surface with implantoplasty  
Diameter, mm IMP1 Control IMP2
Machined collar 3.5 3.09 (0.05)* 3.55 (0.02)* 2.88 (0.07)*
4.0 3.40 (0.05)* 3.97 (0.01)* 3.13 (0.07)*
Bone level 3.0 2.69 (0.01)* 2.99 (0.01)* 2.58 (0.07)*

4.0 3.45 (0.03)* 3.91 (0.02)* 3.33 (0.06)*
  1. In the control group, the measurement was taken in the corresponding area. The data are presented as the mean with the standard deviation in parentheses. IMP1, industrially machined implant group; IMP2, manually polished implant group. *Statistically significant difference (p < 0.05)
