Learning Objectives:

Describe step by step the Mucogingival surgery for soft tissue dehiscence coverage around implants

Describe the surgical procedure combining transmucosal implant placement and simoultaneous submarginal connective tissue graft in the posterior area

Describe the Mucogingival approach for the delayed implant placement

Describe the Mucogingival approach in combination with immediate post extraction implant placement and immediate loading in the frontal area


The recession of the buccal soft tissue margin is a frequent complication of well integrated dental implants.

The appearance of metallic structure or even their transparency through the thin buccal soft tissues are common reasons for  patient aesthetic complains. Moreover, bad implant installation frequently results in excessive apical dislocation of the buccal soft tissue margin of the implant supported crown. Soft tissue plastic surgical procedures and bilaminar techniques in particular, can be successfully used in combination with a pre and postsurgical prostethic approaches to increase the volume of the interdental soft tissue, to treat buccal gingival recessions and soft tissue dehiscence around dental implants and to provide the new implant supported crown with an esthetic transmucosal emergency profile. A new mucogingival approach applied to delayed or immediate post-extraction implant placement and loading will be presented.
