NCE7: Management of Implant Esthetic Complications via Free Connective Tissue Graft

November 2 @ 9:15 am - 10:00 am

Speakers

Giovanni Zucchelli

Moderators

E. Todd Scheyer

Program Track: Periodontal Plastic and Soft Tissue Surgery

The recession of the buccal soft tissue margin is a frequent complication of well-integrated dental implants. The appearance of metallic structure or even their transparency through the thin buccal soft tissues are common reasons for patient aesthetic complains. Moreover, bad implant installation frequently results in excessive apical dislocation of the buccal soft tissue margin of the implant supported crown. Soft tissue plastic surgical procedures and bilaminar techniques in particular, can be successfully used in combination with a pre and postsurgical prosthetic approaches to increase the volume of the interdental soft tissue, to treat buccal gingival recessions and soft tissue dehiscence around dental implants and to provide the new implant supported crown with an esthetic transmucosal emergency profile.

Educational Objectives:

  • Classify the various clinical scenario with buccal peri implant soft tissues dehiscences
  • Integrate prosthetic phase and plastic surgery into the treatment plans of patients with soft tissues esthetics complications.
  • Recognize the limits of the mucogingival procedures in the treatment of soft tissues dehiscences
