Adequate bone remodeling may be a primary parameter for long-term successful complication-free dental implant treatment. A 1.8-mm osseous thickness around dental implants is thought to be the minimum thickness for adequate vasculature for osteocyte nutrition and function. A dental implant does not provide progenitor cells or angiogenic or osteogenic factors. Thus, the surrounding bone may need to have a 1.8-mm thickness to accommodate the vasculature necessary for nutrients for appropriate remodeling. Additionally, the 1.8-mm dimension may provide for mechanical load resistance. There is no evidence to illustrate the physiologic need for the 1.8-mm dimension. This dimension requirement is based on clinical outcome observations. Basic science research for bone survival around dental implants is needed.
