The lack of adequate thickness of the peri implant buccal soft tissues can lead to incorrect emergence profiles of the prosthetic crown, which are difficult to maintain from a hygienic point of view; in these cases, the main goal of the plastic surgery is to augment the thickness of the connective tissue at the level of the peri-implant transmucosal portion. This is achieved with a surgical technique that involves the use of a connective tissue graft covered by a coronally advanced flap along with a prosthetic phase. To prevent soft tissue dehiscence occurrence correct 3d implant positioning is of paramount importance.

Immediate implant installation is traditionally considered as a flapless procedure and it is indicated only in sites with ideal anatomical conditions such as an intact facial bone wall with a thick wall phenotype (> 1 mm) and a thick gingival biotype. The aim of the lecture will be to describe a mucogingival approach to immediate implant installation that allow performing this surgical treatment also in different clinical scenarios, such as:

  • Unfavorable position of the soft tissue margin of the tooth to be extracted.
  • Unfavorable condition of the soft tissue margin of the adjacent teeth (presence of gingival recession or altered passive eruption).
  • Loss of papillae height and thickness of the tooth to be extracted.
  • Unfavorable condition of the the buccal bone wall.

The course will be in English with a direct translation in French. Only 60 participants will be able to come because we want the course to be interactive. We will have a nice meal at the negresco between morning and afternoon.
