Abstract

With the advent of various implant abutment junctions, the ultimate aim is to develop a precise implant abutment junction with negligible micro-leakage. However precise the mechanical connection is, there seems to be a negligible amount of micro-leakage that is present that can be addressed with the help of sealing gel. This study aims to assess the micro-leakage between the neo-sealing gel and the commercially available implant sealing gel. The study was conducted on implants (n=15) with internal hex connections, group 1 (No gel, n=5), group 2 (Neo gel, n=5) and group 3 (commercial gel, n=5).  Mean dE*ab values of 0.28 0.02, 0.04 0.01 and 0.170.01 were noted for the 3 groups, and there was statistically significant difference between the 3 groups (p≤0.05). The study suggests that the neo sealing gel may be a promising material to prevent bacterial ingress and micro-leakage at the implant abutment junction.
