The success of dental implants has resulted in greater demand from patients. However, there are circumstances that prevent ideal placement of implants due to soft- and hard-tissue defects. Such defects may arise as a result of infection, trauma, or prolonged tooth loss.
Various augmentation treatments are available to regain lost tissues for more aesthetic and predictable implant placement. In addition, if a site in the mouth is expected to contract, simple procedures can prevent such defects from occurring.
