Tooth loss or extraction is associated with significant reduction in alveolar ridge volume, extensively expressed in the anterior zone, and immediate implant placement is insufficient to overcome this problem. The proposed approach combined immediate implant placement with buccal tissue enhancement by applying a crosslinked collagen matrix hydrated with crosslinked hyaluronic acid (xHyA). All 10 cases presented with a retained but narrow buccal socket wall, so immediate implant placement with the “tunneled sandwich” technique was performed after tooth extraction. The tunneled sandwich technique helped create a subperiosteal pouch for insertion of the collagen matrix buccal to the alveolar bone crest. The implants healed transmucosally by receiving either a gingiva former or an immediate temporary restoration. Ten sites in 10 patients demonstrated stable, noninflamed peri-implant conditions and suitable ridge volume at the implant neck and achieved high pink esthetic scores 6 months after implant loading. The tunneled sandwich technique is a suitable method to preserve buccal volume, which biologically and esthetically contributes to favorable long-term results.
