Case of Interest 1


Over the past decade, one of the biggest challenges in implant dentistry has been the development of peri-implant gingival aesthetics, particularly in the anterior maxillary region. Implant restorations present a unique challenge compared to natural teeth.  A harmonious gingival architecture is required around the implant restoration and the surrounding dentition. An aesthetic implant provisional restoration is also a critical component for evaluating and modifying the tissues surrounding an implant.

Dr. Emiliano Zanaboni’s excellence as an implant surgeon and in particular his expertise in augmentation of the soft and hard tissues has been recognised nationally and internationally.  The following case study is a good example of the expertise and surgical time required to obtain superlative outcomes in the aesthetic zone. Two surgical procedures were carried out by Emiliano in order to preserve the papilla between UL2 and UL3.  Inevitably, achieving a highly aesthetic result incurs higher costs than a straight-forward implant.

The UL2 is hopeless after several apicectomies.  Now a fistula is present on the buccal.  UL3 has cervical decay under the soft tissue and apically to the mucogingival line.
