Topic Description :
Treatment of Peri-Implant Soft Tissue Dehiscences at Single Implant Sites in the Esthetic Zone
The success in implant therapy, should not be solely dependent on its long-term survival, but also on its functional, esthetic, hard- and soft-tissue stability. An apical shift of the peri-implant facial soft tissue margin has been defined with many terms throughout the literature, including mid-facial recession or mucosal recession. Many techniques, such as the coronally advanced flap, the VISTA technique, guided bone regeneration procedures, have been proposed for treating this condition. Therefore, the aim of this webinar will be discussing how to management soft and hard tissue of dental implants installed in the aesthetic zone.
- Identify and diagnose peri-implant recessions
- Classify tissue deficiencies around implants in the aesthetic area
- Perform an appropriate surgical and prosthetic planning for the correction of marginal recesses around implants
- Decide what is the best type of gingival graft for these aesthetic corrections
- identify predictors of surgical success for better planning
