Implant-Related Soft Tissue Management: Contemporary Strategies for Biologic and Esthetic Long-Term Success
In modern dentistry, implants are one of the most popular and sophisticated solutions for the replacement of missing teeth. While functional aspects are clearly the focus in the posterior area, a harmonic natural contour of the gingiva is highly desired in the esthetic zone. A precise planning of the initial incision, the preparation of surgical flaps, and the final suturing technique are essential for a successful treatment outcome. Understanding biologic interactions around implants is fundamental for contemporary soft tissue management and for meeting the patient's expectations. This lecture provides (1) an overview of biologic factors influencing the long-term stability of peri-implant tissue, (2) current surgical techniques for implant-related soft tissue management, and (3) the applications for modern treatment approaches, offering practical support to dentists in their day-to-day work.
- Highlight common patient concerns with implants in the esthetic zone
- Gain an understanding of biologic factors influencing the long-term stability of peri-impant tissue
- Discuss the benefits and risks of current treatment approaches
- Outline step-by-step surgical procedures for implants in the esthetic zone
NOTE: Remember to bring your loupes (3.5-5.0x magnification).
