Soft Tissue Considerations in Implant-based Maxillofacial Reconstruction

Vinay Vijaya Kumar

In patients with reconstructed jaws, implant-supported overdentures improve quality of life and mastication, although the peri-implant tissues differ from those of unreconstructed jaws. This lecture outlines these differences and presents the techniques used to provide adequate peri-implant soft tissue in reconstructed jaws: split thickness skin grafts, palatal mucosal grafts, pedicled palatal connective tissue grafts and denture-guided epithelial regeneration. 

At the end of this Congress Lecture you should be able to…

  • explain the rationale for implant-supported rehabilitation in reconstructed jaws
  • discuss problems associated with soft tissue in reconstructed jaws
  • classify peri-implant soft tissues in reconstructed jaws
  • explain the management of peri-implant soft tissues in reconstructed jaws
