Soft-tissue grafting with Emdogain® and coronal advance flap to stop crestal bone loss around functional dental implants.

Posted on By Emilio Rodriguez-Fernández In Soft Tissue Enhancement

Vertical and horizontal thick soft tissue maintain crestal bone level with minimal remodeling (Linkevicius, Clin Oral Impl Res, 2015). A 72 years old woman with four dental implants restored with a bar and a over-denture in the lower maxilla arrived to the office with discomfort and sensitivity in two of them.

Horizontal soft-tissue thickness in both implants was less than 3 mm, vertical soft-tissue thickness was less than 3 mm. Crestal bone loss was found in one of the implants and zero bone loss in the other.

I decided to increase the thickness of the soft-tissue of both implants with a connective tissue graft, Emdogain® and a coronal advanced flap.

After 10 weeks of healing period, discomfort and sensitivity have disappeared.

Please, leave your comments and tell me what do you think.

Thank you,

Emilio Rodriguez
