Summary

The purpose of the study is to investigate the behavior of Merkel cells and nerve tissue in peri-implant tissue using immunohistochemistry, electron microscopy, and confocal laser scanning microscopy. These results suggested that even though the regeneration of epithelium and nerve tissue occurred around the periimplant region, Merkel cells did not regenerate in peri-implant. Therefore, it has to be considered that MC—neurite complexes are not formed in the peri-implant tissue.
