Soft Tissue Ridge Augmentation to Correct an Esthetic Deformity Caused By Poorly Placed Implants: A Case Report
A patient presented with two osseointegrated implants placed in a ridge deformity that had resulted from a traumatic injury during an automobile accident. The implant placement and subsequent restorative dentistry resulted in a poor esthetic result and difficult maintenance. Treatment included multiple soft tissue grafts to submerge the implants and augment the ridge. The patient was then restored with a conventional fixed partial denture.
