How conditioning of soft tissue around implants can improve the final aesthetic results.
The video described the full treatment of a patient in need to restore the frontal upper area, replacing central incisors with two fixtures and other all crowns.
The amount of soft tissue around the fixtures, at the reopening step, was considerably too much, in particular in vertical direction (transmucosa pathway).
The screwed temporary restorations pushed up and horizontally the soft tissue recruiting and acceptable esthetic appearance. All clinical and laboratory procedures are described in details.
It is shown how the soft tissue can modify its shape and position after removing the temporaries in direct relation with time; also by histological section it is possible to see that the soft tissue of the transmucosa pathway is formed by a ‘long epithelium attachment’ and no cheratinized tissue is represented against the crown surface.
