Background: Further clarification of the early and late response of peri-implant tissues to surgical insertion and loading of dental implants and the potential associations among the various implant-related measures are likely to improve the evaluation/monitoring of implant sites. Thus, analyses were made of the volume and nitric oxide (NO) profile of peri-implant sulcus fluid (PISF), implant stability, and marginal bone level in relation to different prosthetic designs.
