Abstract

Aim: To evaluate buccal bone thickness anterior to Nasopalatine canal in maxillary central incisor region in male and female for implant assessment. Material and method: The Buccal bone thickness was measured on sixty CBCT scans in sagittal section ,measured at three level upper level, middle level, lower level (30 males & 30 females). The data was tabulated and subjected to statistical analysis to determine the correlation to gender. Result: We found a significant difference between alveolar bone width anterior to the canal in the upper third, alveolar bone width anterior to the canal in the middle third, and gender, with males outnumbering females by 0.40 and 0.86, respectively, and no significant difference between alveolar bone width anterior to the canal in the lower third. Conclusion: The current study provides useful data on the thickness of buccal walls in the aesthetic maxillary central incisor region as a preoperative analysis for establishing an immediate implant treatment plan for aesthetically pleasing long-term outcomes. Because resorption of the buccal plate is more severe when the walls are first thinner, it is more likely to affect the anterior regions than the posterior ones. CBCT is the most effective method for avoiding compromises in cosmetic reconstruction.
