Keratinized tissue around implants is beneficial for soft tissue stability and esthetics. The aim of this investigation is to show the use of amnion/chorion membrane to increase the keratinized tissue. Fifteen patients were grafted with the allograft at the first or second stage of implant surgery. The mean values of keratinized tissue were 1.27 ± 0.46 mm, 2.00 ± 0.38 mm, 2.80 ± 0.78 mm, and 3.27 ± 0.80 mm at the initial evaluation and 7, 15, and 60 days postsurgery (prosthetic delivery was at day 60), respectively (P < .001). Most increase occurred between 7 days up to the prosthetic delivery. Use of the amnion/chorion membrane seems to improve keratinized-tissue expansion.

To evaluate the influence that three different implant-abutment interface designs had on peri-implant mucosal outcomes as assessed by the pink esthetic score (PES) 3 years after delayed implant placem...
The goal of this investigation was to define time-dependent peri-implant tissue changes at implants with different abutment interface designs.
To compare the survival rate of abutments, marginal bone loss and peri-implant soft tissue discoloration amongst implant-supported single crowns with different abutment materials.
The purpose of this case series was to evaluate peri-implant tissues in 10 patients at 1 year after placement of a tapered 3.0-mm laser-microtextured dental implant (Laser-Lok, BioHorizons) using a tw...

The plan and delineation of DENTAL IMPLANT fitting with DENTAL ABUTMENT.
Insertion of an implant into the bone of the mandible or maxilla. The implant has an exposed head which protrudes through the mucosa and is a prosthodontic abutment.
Endosseous dental implantation where implants are fitted with an abutment or where an implant with a transmucosal coronal portion is used immediately (within 1 week) after the initial extraction. Conventionally, the implantation is performed in two stages with more than two months in between the stages.
A procedure whereby the body is stimulated to generate extra soft tissue by the application of stretching forces that stimulate new growth of tissue which, over a period of time, results in a 2-dimensional expansion of the tissue. The procedure is used in reconstructive surgery for injuries caused by trauma, burns, or ablative surgery. Various types of TISSUE EXPANSION DEVICES have been developed that exert stretching forces.
Devices used to generate extra soft tissue in vivo to be used in surgical reconstructions. They exert stretching forces on the tissue and thus stimulate new growth and result in TISSUE EXPANSION. They are commonly inflatable reservoirs, usually made of silicone, which are implanted under the tissue and gradually inflated. Other tissue expanders exert stretching forces by attaching to outside of the body, for example, vacuum tissue expanders. Once the tissue has grown, the expander is removed and the expanded tissue is used to cover the area being reconstructed.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
