Model-Guided Soft Tissue Augmentation
van Dooren, Eric
Aesthetic rehabilitation of patients demands simplified treatment procedures with predictable results. The presented case series shows a technique for simple and safe augmentation and development of a soft-tissue pontic support with connective tissue transplantation. After taking a precise impression, the augmentation is first simulated "realistically" on the model and the definitive pontic developed. When introduced immediately after surgical augmentation, it then shapes the healing soft tissue optimally.
