We found that the increase in marginal bone loss over time was found to be correlated with width on both sides, however; no correlation was found for height variable. Marginal bone loss increased with an increase in bone width.
Objective: To assess the effects of different variables including implant type and thread design, bone width and height measured on cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) images, along with systemic and patient related factors on marginal bone loss around dental implants which were measured on postoperative panoramic radiographs.
Manuscripts that are Published Ahead of Print have been peer reviewed and accepted for publication by the Editorial Board of the West Indian Medical Journal. They may appear in their original format and may not be copy edited or formatted in the style guide of this Journal. While accepted manuscripts are not yet assigned a volume, issue or page numbers, they can be cited using the DOI and date of e-publication.

Manuscripts in this section will be removed once they have been issued to a volume and issue, but will still retain the DOI and date of e-publication.
The aim of this article was to examine post-burn bone loss and determine whether it was local or diffuse. These injuries caused systemic bone loss. This bone loss could not be correlated with the severity of the burns.
