Abstract

In guided bone regeneration (GBR) interventions, the incorrect manipulation of the soft tissues may lead to exposure of graft due to insufficient amount of tissue needed for a free-tension flap closure. The aim of this investigation was to evaluate the clinical and radiographical effectiveness of soft tissue augmentation in aesthetic areas. A total of 6 patients were treated in the Department of Medical, Oral and Biotechnological Sciences, University “G. D’Annunzio” of Chieti-Pescara, with a radiographical follow-up at 1 year from the loading. At the follow up, no soft tissue dehiscence was observed This study presented an innovative approach for soft tissue augmentation prior to bone regeneration in aesthetic areas. Augmentation of soft tissue with a silicon expander device before bone regeneration is a simple technique and also allows to obtain greater bone tissue in selective cases.
