It is no longer enough for implants to merely integrate. The achievement of peri-implant health and superior esthetics is essential. This brilliant three-part presentation will discuss the importance of keratinized gingiva and the gingival volume required for peri-implant health. A thorough review of the multiplicity of surgical techniques available and the requirement for atraumatic tissue handling through precise technique and magnification will be illuminated.
• Review what is an adequate amount of keratinized gingiva and gingival volume required for peri-implant health.
• Discuss gingival augmentation procedures that should be routinely planned to obtain ideal implant esthetics.
• Visualize the biomechanical befits of precise soft tissue management afforded by the microsurgical approach.
• Determine how far the envelope for maximal preservation of failing implants in the esthetic zone can be pushed.
