Soft tissue regeneration around teeth and implants with Dr. Todd Scheyer
Today, implant and reconstructive therapies include a variety of clinical steps to optimize biological and esthetical outcomes. Soft tissue grafting procedures are considered an integral part of implant therapy and various techniques and materials are applied at different time-points. Whereas autogenous transplants are still widely used, they are associated with major disadvantages, most prominently the associated morbidity. Therefore, more recently, a number of soft tissue substitutes have been developed and some of them demonstrate favorable clinical success and less morbidity.
