Alshiddi IF, Dent DC - Contemp Clin Dent (2015)

Bottom Line: A 49-year-old male presented with missing right maxillary lateral incisor.Two months later, an indirect method was used to accurately transfer the soft peri-implant tissues to the master cast.This clinical technique minimizes surgical procedure and avoids the possibility of soft tissue collapsing that may occur during the impression procedure.

ABSTRACT
One of the challenges in restoring anterior space with implant restoration is maintaining the natural looking of peri-implant area. This case report presents a clinical procedure to create the soft tissue emergence profile for anterior maxillary teeth. A 49-year-old male presented with missing right maxillary lateral incisor. A provisional restoration was inserted 1 week after implant placement. Area of the provisional restoration related to the gingival tissue (transmucosal area) was adjusted to create an optimum emergence profile. Two months later, an indirect method was used to accurately transfer the soft peri-implant tissues to the master cast. This clinical technique minimizes surgical procedure and avoids the possibility of soft tissue collapsing that may occur during the impression procedure.

Figure 1: Pre-treatment clinical view, missing of maxillary right lateral incisor

Mentions: A 49-year-old nonsmoking male presented to the dental office complaining of missing maxillary right lateral incisor [Figure 1]. The tooth was extracted 2 months before presenting to the clinic due to root fracture. Previous dental history revealed that the tooth had received a root canal treatment and had a postretained crown. A removable partial denture was fabricated for him by his previous dentist immediately after extraction to restore the space of the extracted maxillary lateral incisor.
