Fig. 2. Implant angulation was measured on peri-apical view radiographs using tools in a radiographic analysis program (PACS; INFINIT Co.). Through the program, two lines were drawn to represent the alveolar ridge line and the line that divides the implant fixture in half, and then the angle formed by those two lines was analyzed. The upper left side of the figure shows an implant with angulation of less than 10°, which was sorted to Group 1. The upper right side of the figure shows an implant in Group 2 because the angulation is between 10° and 20°. The lower part of the figure shows an implant with a vertical angle of more than 20°, so it was sorted to Group 3.
