Simultaneous Contour Augmentation Using GBR

Daniel Buser , Stephen T Chen , Vivianne Chappuis

The single tooth replacement with an implant-supported crown is a frequent indication for implant therapy.

In the anterior maxilla, not only does the prosthetic replacement need to re-establish function, it also needs to satisfy esthetic expectations.

To achieve optimal esthetic outcomes, the implant prosthesis must mimic the adjacent natural teeth in color and shape.

In addition, the peri-implant soft tissues on the facial aspect must appear similar to the gingivae of the adjacent teeth in volume, contour, color, and texture.

After completing this ITI Academy Module, you should be able to…

  • explain the rationale for contour augmentation using guided bone regeneration (GBR)
  • list the materials used for contour augmentation in esthetic sites
