Abstracts

The prosthetic rehabilitation of anterior teeth with osseointegrated implants is still a challenge in implantology. To avoid aesthetic complications in areas with bone or mucosal defects, it is often necessary to use bone and soft tissue grafts with the implants. This article describes the surgical and prosthodontic approach to such a patient where removal of the maxillary central incisors was performed and implants were immediately placed. To avoid the loss of bone and mucosal tissues, alloplastic bone graft and subepithelial connective tissue grafts were used. The prosthetic phase of treatment was performed after the period of osseointegration period, allowing for aesthetic harmony between the prosthesis and gingival tissue.

Keywords :

Dental implant; alloplastic bone graft; subepithelial connective tissue graft.
