The participants will get an introduction how to solve this soft tissue closure problem according to the location.


Stable implant integration and functionality, along with aesthetic outcome are important aspects in modern implantology. The anatomical situation, however, rarely supports optimal implant insertion. To ensure a predictable and aesthetic treatment outcome, specific principles for the augmentation should be considered.

Today, soft tissue surgery together with modern materials and techniques (mucoderm®, etc.) permit minimally invasive treatments with improved aesthetic results. Already in 2007, membranes were developed to improve the width and strength of the keratinized gingiva as well as change the gingiva typology. Over the last years, specific materials and techniques have been established for improved and more predictable results of plastic peri-implant surgery. These concepts may be supported with other modern technologies, such as the PRF-technique, aiming to further improve and accelerate hard and soft tissue healing.
