Vestibuloplasty: Fundamentals to Current Techniques
The adequate vestibular depth and keratinized gingiva are essential in optimizing dental implants' soft tissue environment and long-term stability. The depth of the vestibule and the amount of keratinized gingiva often diminishes in response to advanced periodontal disease, conventional dentures, and advanced bone grafting augmentation procedures. In this program, Dr. H. Ryan Kazemi discusses the fundamentals of vestibuloplasty and early techniques that continue to be the foundation for current approaches. He discusses contemporary techniques and materials in vestibuloplasty and restoration of attached keratinized gingiva to support dental implants. He further discusses the sequence and timing for performing such procedures.
