P033 Soft Tissue Modelling for the Single Tooth Implant Restoration

Speaker:Dr Carlos Repullo

  • About This Course

This recorded webinar will discuss the different techniques for soft tissue modelling around single tooth implant restorations. Natural gingival contours around implants is one of the major challenges in the treatment of the aesthetic zone. Prefabricated gingiva formers are used to create standard contours and each implant system offer a wide variety of shapes, diameters and heights trying to adapt their healers to the different clinical situations. Now with the integration of digital technology and chairside production in the dental practice, clinicians are able to fabricate fully customise healers in order to improve aesthetic results at the soft tissue level.


Learning Outcomes


The aim of this presentation is to:

  • Describe the different techniques, from semi-customized (STL database) to fully-customized (DAP technique) healing abutments using digital technology for soft tissue molding
  • Discuss advantages and limitations of each technique in comparison with standard approach (prefabricated gingiva formers)
  • Show the clinical and digital workflow


On completion of this webinar you will understand the different techniques used for soft tissue modelling, and the advantages and limitations of these.
