Correction of Bone and Softtissue Deformity of the Single Implant in the Aesthetic Zone: A Case Treated With Alveolar Ridge Preservation, Modified Roll Technique and a Digitally Coded Healing Abutment

Abstract

The correction of soft tissue deformity and aesthetic rehabilitation of a single implant in the aesthetic zone with a combination of periodontal and prosthodontic approaches is described. Soft tissue deformity was corrected resulting in significant soft tissue volume increase and eliminated the need for prosthetic gingival replacement. A two stage implant placement protocol, ridge preservation and a soft tissue augmentation flap design preserved epithelium attachment to the connective tissues. Use of a digitally coded healing abutment preserved the newly established soft tissue volume, allowed impression making without implant component removal, and minimized trauma to the newly established soft tissue architecture.
