Keratinized augmentation thru SS

145 Rating(s).

Posted on By Jorge Campos In Soft Tissue Enhancement

We know by Canullo 2105, that after a period of 7 years the keratinized gingiva width gets closer to the 2mm dangerous zone, were periimplantitis may occur.
Here I post a case of a normal SS treatment (SPoT) but after analizyng the outcome and comparing to initial tooth keratinized width gingiva I found and improvement on the quality of the zone. I could be easily understood if I had done ortho extrusion of the shield, but it is not the case. Just HEALLING abutment on implant and PRF on top. After 6 months normal uncovery and see the evolution of keratinized gingiva from Nov 4th, Dec 12th and Jan 13.

Very interesting observation Jorge. Do you think the PRF had any role in this response? Nice results!! Regards Naheed


Jorge; I have found similar hypothesis is that the space left above th shield reduction FILLS in with CT overtime providing added thickness and zone of KT.
