Changes in Peri-implant Soft Tissue Thickness with Bone Grafting and Dermis Allograft: A Case Series of 15 Consecutive Patients
Levin, Barry P. / Chu, Stephen J.
Immediate implant placement and provisional restoration has become a popular and well-supported method of tooth replacement in the maxillary anterior dentition. Aside from achieving osseointegration, esthetic demands have grown with better understanding of the behavior of hard and soft tissues following this mode to therapy. Stability of gingival contours, texture of the surrounding tissues, and blending of prosthetic components with the natural dentition are critical for successful outcomes to be maintained long-term. Increasing soft tissue thickness at the time of therapy plays an important role in this regard. A technique combining the proven principles of immediate implant placement and provisional restoration with hard and soft tissue augmentation using nonautogenous materials is demonstrated with comparisons to nongrafted, temporized historical controls.
