Soft tissue management around dental implants
The scope of implant dentistry had long focused on osseointegration, the performance of the dental implant & management of bone. Yet, hard and soft tissues are symbiotic as they relate to both implant survival & treatment success. This lecture explores the techniques for soft tissue management at implants that complements the hard tissue & its augmentations, toward healthy & aesthetic outcomes.

Results of a Preliminary Randomized, Human Histomorphometric, Split-Mouth Study
Guided bone regeneration of a fenestration complication at immediate implant placement simultaneous to the socketshield technique
Recession subsequent to immediate implant placement is a certainty, be it 1 mm
minimum or greater. As the bundle bone is lost following the tooth’s extraction, this
recession is coupled to buccopalatal collapse and may see significant aesthetic

An esthetically pleasing result is the product of both prosthetic excellence and the health and quality of the soft tissue that frames the restoration.
