The recreation of the emergence profile
The root shape prior to extraction needs to be duplicated, so that the pressure that surrounds the root is maintained.
This technique, in combination with the different soft tissue graft procedures, will result in the aesthetic solution that will recreate the volume we had before the extraction was done.
Nowadays, we have amazing digital technology, that can definitely help us in the planning and execution of the case. This is a way to know, before we start with a case, the amount of tissue we need for the best aesthetic result.
Soft tissue is not only for aesthetics. The functional maintenance of implants is as important as the aesthetic outcome. When to use, and the type of graft to use are decisions we need to make in order to obtain not only aesthetic, but also stable functional results.
