Prostheses design for the achievement of stable and aesthetic periimplantary tissues

Xavier Vela Nebot (Spain)

Time: 12:00 - 13:00
Room: EL GRECO (PV7)
Language: Spanish
Chair(s): Luis Rasal (Spain)

Learning Objectives

  • > Aesthetic and stability advantages of working with marginless abutments and temporary prostheses to achieve mimic nature within rehabilitations
  • > Importance of the soft tissue stability role in the amount of bone resorption


Successful treatment of a maxillary aesthetic zone is not only given by osseointegration, but also by the stability of soft tissues around the rehabilitation and its ability to mimic nature within rehabilitations. Furthermore, the soft tissue stability also plays a very important role in the amount of bone resorption. The early periimplant bone resorption and the soft tissue recession have been related to mainly two hypotheses. One is directly related to the effect of the inflammatory cell infiltrated produced by the implant abutment interface. The other one is related to the soft tissue stabilization on  the transmucosal part of the rehabilitation. The objective of this presentation consists of showing how important the macrodesign, the shape of the abutment and crown, and the consequences of its handling are. During the presentation some interesting topics will be answered: Are soft tissue recession and hard tissue resorption unavoidable? Is it possible to achieve coronal migration of the tissues overtime? Which element drives the other: bone-implant-restoration?
