Soft Tissue Changes Around Dental Implants

2020-02-16 17:40:49 | BioPortfolio


This study aims to characterize the healing pattern following soft tissue augmentation procedure concomitant to implant placement.


This study will characterize, for the first time, the healing pattern of soft tissues around dental implants in case of soft tissue augmentation and in comparison, to normal healing.

An innovative and comprehensive geometric/thermal imaging analysis will be employed that is non-contact and non-invasive to patients and will allow to characterize the healing process in a 2D-3D dimensional and volumetric way.

This approach, combined with LSCI and clinical and radiographic outcomes, will provide new data on the biology and critical phases of soft tissue healing around implants, as well as on the stability and aesthetics of the peri-implant tissues with different grafts.

Patient-reported outcome measurements (PROMs) will also be used to assess the level of pain and discomfort associated with soft tissue augmentation procedures.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Infections of non-skeletal tissue, i.e., exclusive of bone, ligaments, cartilage, and fibrous tissue. The concept is usually referred to as skin and soft tissue infections and usually subcutaneous and muscle tissue are involved. The predisposing factors in anaerobic infections are trauma, ischemia, and surgery. The organisms often derive from the fecal or oral flora, particularly in wounds associated with intestinal surgery, decubitus ulcer, and human bites. (From Cecil Textbook of Medicine, 19th ed, p1688)

Injuries of tissue other than bone. The concept is usually general and does not customarily refer to internal organs or viscera. It is meaningful with reference to regions or organs where soft tissue (muscle, fat, skin) should be differentiated from bones or bone tissue, as "soft tissue injuries of the hand".

Implants used in arthroscopic surgery and other orthopedic procedures to attach soft tissue to bone. One end of a suture is tied to soft tissue and the other end to the implant. The anchors are made of a variety of materials including titanium, stainless steel, or absorbable polymers.

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.

The assessment, treatment, and management of soft tissue injury or dysfunction. Therapy is designed to reduce tension and irritation in affected tissues and may include MASSAGE; muscle stretching, or direct pressure on muscles, connective tissue, and TRIGGER POINTS.
