Localized Soft Tissue Ridge Augmentation at Phase 2 Implant Surgery: A Case Report
Roberto Barone, MD, DDS/Carlo Clauser, MD, DDS/Giovanpaolo Pini Prato, MD, DDS
A case of congenitally missing maxillary lateral incisors is presented to illustrate a modification of Abramsís roll technique. Buccal releasing incisions are avoided by using an intrasulcular incision on the adjacent teeth. The tissue overlying the cover screw is transferred between the buccal cortical bone and the buccal masticatory mucosa, thus correcting the localized buccal ridge atrophy.
