Peri-implant bone has been long considered the most critical factor for long-term maintenance of dental implant health. Peri-implant soft tissues have frequently been regarded to be important for esthetics of implant-supported restorations. However, recent evidence has demonstrated the significance of the quantity & quality of peri-implant mucosa for the long-term health of peri-implant tissues. A decision tree will be presented for soft tissue augmentation needs. A variety of soft tissue augmentation procedures have been employed for augmentation of peri-implant mucosal deficiencies. The “vestibular incision subperiosteal tunnel access ” (VISTA) is suited for peri-implant soft tissue augmentation. The hands-on work-shop will provide participants with practical experience with protocols used for peri-implant soft tissue augmentation. The live surgery demonstration will illustrate the complete protocol.
