Stage 2 Surgical Techniques in Endosseous Implantation

Ruud C. Hertel, DDS, PhD/Peter A. Blijdorp, DDS, MD, PhD/Warner Kalk, DDS, PhD/David L. Baker, DDS

The most commonly used techniques for uncovering implants in stage 2 surgery are listed and the advantages and disadvantages are described. A reconstructive technique as used by the authors is described and clinically evaluated. Use of the reconstructive technique creates a significantly broader fixed mucosa. In patients with less than 4 mm of preoperative fixed mucosal width, the destructive techniques often leave no postoperative fixed mucosa whatsoever. (INT J ORAL MAXILLOFAC IMPLANTS 1994;9:273278)

Key words: dental implants, stage 2 dental surgery
