Abstract

Among various challenges to restore a single tooth implant in the posterior region of the oral cavity is the creation of harmonious gingival contour beneath the restoration and near the abutment –gingiva interface so as not to allow plaque accumulation within this inaccessible zone. Deficiencies in the soft or hard tissue in the edentulous space are usually the most common obstacles to achieve a gingival symmetry around the proposed restoration, besides the factors like accessibility of cleansing aids to the area. This article describes a novel approach to eliminate the ridge or soft tissue deficiencies by over contouring and undermining soft tissue around the healing abutment at the second stage implant surgery.
