The Management of Peri-implant Mucosa Deficiencies in Esthetic Sites: Case Report of a Combined Surgical-Prosthetic Approach
Jurczyk, Karolina / Belser, Urs C. / Sculean, Anton
In cases of single missing teeth, implant rehabilitation is generally the preferred treatment option. However, obtaining pleasing esthetic results in the anterior maxillary region and maintaining or rebuilding peri-implant papillae remain challenging tasks. The loss of papillae may cause not just functional but also phonetic and esthetic problems. There is scarce information on the reliability of surgical approaches concerning the peri-implant papilla. The purpose of this case report is to present a modified prosthetic-surgical technique to enhance the convex facial contour of the peri-implant mucosa and volume and height of papillary tissue in an esthetically highly demanding patient.
