Influence of Tissue Biotype on Implant Esthetics

Jia-Hui Fu, BDS/Angie Lee, DMD, MS/Hom-Lay Wang, PhD, MSD, DDS


PMID: 21691596

Implant dentistry has come a long way since 1981, with great improvements made to achieve primary implant stability and improve bone-to-implant contact. The focus has since shifted toward creating an esthetic restoration that is indistinguishable from natural teeth and is stable over time. This paper proposes a management triad that enhances soft tissue thickness around implant-supported restorations while discussing distinct differences between thin and thick tissue biotypes. In addition, the effect of tissue biotype on implant esthetics is highlighted. Int J Oral Maxillofac Implants 2011;26:499508

Key words: biologic width, implant esthetics, interproximal papilla, peri-implant mucosa
