Background: Interdental papilla height is important as esthetic factor for dental implant success. The present study was conducted to compare the amount of soft tissues around Noris Tuff TT and Nobel Active dental implant systems. Materials & Methods: The present study was conducted on 28 patients (males- 13, females- 15) who received 32 dental implants in maxillary anterior region.Group I patients received Nobel Active dental implants and Group II patients received Noris Tuff TT dental implants. In all patients, interdental papilla was evaluated using JEMT index. The amount of bone loss in both groups was evaluated using paired and unpaired t-test. Results: The amount of bone loss around dental implants in both groups did not show significant difference (P> 0.05). There was non- significant correlation between bone loss and papilla index in both groups (P> 0.05) Conclusion: The amount of interdental bone loss and papilla profile in the maxillary anterior region around Noris Tuff TT when compared to that around Nobel Active dental implants was non-significant. Clinical significance: The preservation of interdental papilla is of paramount importance for the successful dental implant therapy.
Key words: Bone loss, Noris Tuff TT implants, Nobel Active implants, Interdental papilla, JEMT index.
