Peri-implant Soft Tissue Management and Integration
One of the greatest challenges facing clinicians is to obtain an early and long-standing effective mucosa seal, capable of biologically protecting the peri-implant structures. This is particularly difficult in compromised sites, due to trauma, atrophy, and/or periodontal disease. Recent systematic reviews have confirmed that, the presence of an appropriate amount of keratinized mucosa is desirable.Learning objectives:
- Understand difference between osseointegration & soft-tissue integration..
- Evaluate peri-implant soft tissues conditions for long-term results.
- Identify which conditions are risk factors for implant maintenance.
- Determine the situations where soft tissue grating is indicated
