Challenges and Perspectives in Peri-implant Soft Tissue Reconstruction – Paving the way to biological and esthetic long-term success


The structural composition and esthetic appearance of the peri-implant mucosa emerges continuously as one of the key points in modern implant dentistry. While in the posterior area biological aspects with a keratinized, thick and attached peri-implant mucosa are clearly in the center of interest, it is in the esthetic zone its harmonic and natural look.

Challenges and Perspectives in Peri-implant Soft Tissue Reconstruction – Paving the way to biological and esthetic long-term success
The structural composition and esthetic appearance of the peri-implant mucosa emerges continuously as one of the key points in modern
implant dentistry. While in the posterior area biological aspects with a keratinized, thick and attached peri-implant mucosa are clearly in the center of interest, it is in the esthetic zone its harmonic and natural look.

Precise planning of the initial incisions, the surgical flap preparation, the flap mobilization and the final suturing technique for flap stabilization becomes essential to consider these aforementioned factors, presently acknowledged as significant and indisputable parameters of success. Furthermore, understanding the histologic composition of the palatal mucosa as the predestinated donor site for soft tissue autograft harvesting as well as understanding their biological interactions around teeth and implants in the course of early wound healing becomes fundamental for up to date soft tissue management and for addressing higher patients’ expectations.

This 2-day practical workshop goes deep into the details of contemporary clinical concepts with regard to the handling and reconstruction of the soft tissues surrounding implants. Alongside the theoretical and practical fundaments, the most innovative clinical strategies will be covered and debated extensively. To this end, participants will carry out a series of practical exercises with the aid of magnifying lenses and under the careful supervision of Dr. Otto Zuhr.
