Tissue management of missing laterals



To achieve optimal tissue manipulation, management begins at second stage once the implants are exposed.  This allows for optimal healing, particularly around a provisional implant restoration to help mold and shape the tissue early on.  A provisional restoration will help create a more natural emergency profile than a typical healing cap.  In addition to anterior implant restorations, tissue management in the posterior is also recommended.  It allows for better hygiene around implants through the use of a custom abutment.
