Increase of width of keratinised tissue around implants
Aim: Increasing the width of keratinised tissue around implants with Geistlich Mucograft®, while also achieving vestibule creation and oral hygiene access improvement.
Conclusion: Geistlich Mucograft® can be used as an alternative to significantly increase the zone of keratinised and attached tissue around existing implants. In addition, good texture and colour match to surrounding native tissues was observed on the mucogingival tissues regenerated with the 3D-collagen matrix.
