Peri-implant soft tissue augmentation using mucoderm® – SURGERY
Dr. Pandolfi presents gingival recessions and peri-implant soft tissue augmentation, focussing on hard and soft tissue grafting. The patient refused to have the bone volume increased by means of a block graft or GBR technique in a two-step approach. Therefore, a less invasive protocol with a single surgical step and a minimally invasive flap design, GBR with cerabone® and simultaneous soft tissue thickening using mucoderm® was offered to the patient. The two year follow-up clearly shows stable hard and soft tissue profiles using cerabone® and mucoderm®.
Dr. Pandolfi maintains a private practice in Aprilia, Italy focusing on Periodontology and Implantology / Oral surgery. He helds a Degree in Dentistry from the University of Rome “La Sapienza” and conducts trainings in Implantology and Periodontology in the Course of Dental Hygiene. Today, he is an active ITI and SIdP member.
