Soft and hard tissue augmentation for esthetic implant treatment
Dental implants are being increasingly applied in the restoration of partial and edentulous patients. In these patients, soft and hard tissue defects result from a variety of causes, such as, periodontal infection, trauma, and tooth loss. These create an anatomically less favourable foundation for ideal implant placement. For prosthetic-driven dental implant therapy, reconstruction of the alveolar bone, through a variety of regenerative surgical procedures has become predictable.
This presentation documents the soft and hard tissue treatment options ,who required hard and soft tissue augmentation of the ridge, prior to implant placement. We augmented the height and width of the ridge by using an Autogenous bone graft and Xenograft , followed by soft tissue augmentation of the ridge with a subepithelial connective tissue graft and free strip graft plus xenograft.
By combining soft and hard tissue grafts, optimum esthetic and long-term implant prosthesis stability can be achieved and sustained.
