Summary:

Part 1 of the present series presented a rationale for including prosthetic gingiva in the planning of a fixed restoration to ensure an esthetic result for patients with severe horizontal and vertical ridge deficiencies. The second part focused on the diagnostic and treatment planning aspects of the use of artificial gingiva. This third and final installment in the series focuses on the laboratory and clinical procedures involved in fabricating a prosthesis with artificial gingiva and provides information on proper maintenance of these restorations.
