To restore function and aesthetics, dental therapy tries to replace all or part of the diseased or damaged tooth structure. For this reason, a variety of techniques have been used throughout the years, and implants have recently gained popularity. Osteointegration, which occurs when the implant and surrounding bone come into direct touch, is thought to be the most important factor in determining the clinical effectiveness of dental implants.

Implants with a narrower pitch are advantageous when primary stability is a concern because they increase bone-implant contact. The ideal values of thread depth and breadth may vary based on thread form and other geometric parameters. Thread depth is more important than thread width for dispersing peak stresses inside the bone. For implants put in the cancellous bone and subjected to rapid loading, the micro thread arrangement at the implant neck may enhance bone growth and stress distribution.

The advantages of a single design element for a particular implant may be increased or diminished by the implant's other factors. such as mechanical characteristics and biological circumstances. Clinicians should take into account the fact that an implant's success and survival are not guaranteed by a single design element.
