Enough keratinized tissue even in the long run
Verena Vermeulen | Switzerland

Geistlich Mucograft® together with an apically repositioned flap can create new keratinized tissue of excellent quality and perfect texture and color match. This has been shown by many studies. What matters most for patients, though, is long-term stability. A group of clinicians led by Carlo Maiorana, Italy, investigated this topic.1

Research that should influence clinical practice
Dr. Ulpee R. Darbar | United Kingdom

Systematic reviews, despite heterogeneity and standardization issues, can give the clinician a framework from which to assess and plan their patients, temporarily making up for the current lack of randomized controlled trials particularly in the fi eld of dental implantology. This article provides a short overview of key published systematic reviews and their relevance to the clinician.

Facing dehiscence defects in the anterior area
Prof. Shakeel Shahdad | United Kingdom

Soft tissue defects are often encountered prior to implantation, resulting in insufficient attached keratinized mucosa, which, if not corrected, results in less than ideal aesthetic outcomes.

Using a 3-D collagen matrix for vestibuloplasty
Dr. Christian Schmitt | Germany

No painful graft harvest and very good color and texture match surrounding tissue - these are major advantages when performing a vestibuloplasty with Geistlich Mucograft®. Now there is long-term data over five years.

Taking the patient’s view into account

Objective treatment outcomes are measurable and comparable. However, it is also worth taking the patient’s subjective measures into account. This is the goal of “patient-reported outcomes.”
