Incision Design and Soft Tissue Management to Maintain or Establish an Interproximal Papilla Around Integrated Implants: A Case Series
Froum, Stuart J. / Wang, Wendy C.-W. / Hafez, Tarek / Suzuki, Takanori / Yu, Yung Cheng Paul / Cho, Sang-Choon
Maintenance or reconstruction of interproximal papilla for a successful dental implant restoration can be challenging. To date, the results from various surgical and prosthetic techniques to maintain or regenerate papilla adjacent to dental implants have been unpredictable. To maintain the quality of the soft tissue around an implant, the blood supply must be preserved and formation of scar tissue must be minimized during surgery. Therefore, incision design is vital to producing an esthetic and successful dental implant restoration. In this study, specific incision designs and soft tissue management techniques were used to preserve or create interproximal papilla around single or adjacent implants.
