Thick biotype: tissue is characterized by thick, flat gingival architecture with square tooth forms and short interdental papillae. Thin biotype: tissues are typified by thin, scalloped gingival architecture with triangular tooth forms and long interdental papillae.

If the thickness of the mucosa in which the implants are placed is less than 3mm, resorption of the marginal bone will occur in order to create space for the mucosal seal. This can be a concern in posterior mandibular zones, where it can be advisable to have a slightly subcrestal location of the implant neck, since bone loss will be difficult to avoid. The thickness of the mucosa is also concerning in aesthetic cases where a thin biotype is found. In these situations, any marginal bone remodeling will cause gingival recession. In thick biotypes, the soft tissue level can remain stable even with more severe bone loss. In thin biotypes, connective tissue grafts may be able to modify the local conditions, which may explain their clinical efficacy especially in “pouch” techniques where no flap needs to be raised.

In western countries, approximately 20% of the population has the thin, scalloped biotype. In eastern countries, the number of patients representing this second group is significantly greater.
