This presentation will discuss the thin periodontium and how to utilize this to achieve predictable soft tissue grafting for esthetics. Soft tissue grafting by root coverage and augmentation can improve the facial esthetics not just for natural teeth, but also for implants. By utilizing the same concept of placing the soft tissue on the thin periodontium we can help augment the tissue around implants and dentures and improve and enhance the facial esthetics. Animations will illustrate this concept and provide insight as to how we take the soft tissue away from the pallate and harvest it in an elegant, more predictable fashion. This will also show how to secure the covering flap so the patient will not experience any pain after the surgery. This presentation is intended to increase your understanding, comfort and confidence in performing soft tissue grafting in a more predictable way.
