Accurate registration of peri-implant soft tissues to create an optimal emergence profile.

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.

Mentions: Two months later, the provisional restoration was removed, and the implant was examined for osseointegration. Soft tissue healing was completed and stable with the required gingival contour to keep the emergence profile created [Figure 5]. The area was ready for final impression. One of the objectives during the final impression was to transfer the created emergence profile to the permanent restoration accurately.
