Free Gingival Graft to salvage Implants
64-year-old female presents in good health. Inherited case with three different implant types. Patient desires restoration. In position number 12, Quantum implant with tapable abutment. In position number 14, Implant One with screw retained abutment, in position number 15, Bio-Horizons external implant with screw retained abutment. There is zero keratinized tissue on the buccal aspect and poor prognosis. A large free gingival graft, measuring 33 mm, was taken from the palate and sutured on the buccal aspect to provide an adequate zone of acceptable tissue. The tapabale abutment in position number 12, had to be over prepared to provide for path of insertion. Provided for a screw retained the prosthesis in position number 14 and 15 and used temporary cement for position number 12. This will allow for retrieveability and maintenance. Comments requested!
