Post-operative soft tissue management

Author Otto Zuhr

Healthy peri-implant soft tissues hold an important role in long-term implant success and in the prevention of peri-implantitis. In this module, the handling of the soft tissues after implant placement is being discussed. Dr. Otto Zuhr explains uncoverage techniques for submucosally healed implants (abutment connection), both for esthetic and non-esthetic sites. Clinical procedures to improve soft tissue conditions at transmucosal implants are also being explained.
