Gingival grafting/augmentation prior to Prosthodontic care
Posted on 08.24.2012 09:53 AM By William Cohen In Periodontics
This is a 30 year old female who had tooth #4 removed 10 years ago and has been wearing a unilateral temporary that has been ill-fitting and eroding the facial gingival tissue from the mesial buccal root #3. Also, #4 edentulous ridge is reduced and has esthetic concerns. There is not enough bone support or soft tissue for implant consideration. My suggestion is for a large Connective Tissue Graft #3-5 then a 3 unit bridge. If any of you have suggestions feel free to comment.
