Book Chapter
Chapter 11 of the book "Peterson's Principles of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery" is presented. It focuses on basic principles and surgical techniques to manage and, when indicated, reconstruct periimplant soft tissues to improve the long-term predictability and esthetic results achieved in implant therapy. It says that implant soft tissue management aims to establish a healthy periimplant soft tissue environment. It discusses principles of oral soft tissue grafting and surgical details of the most frequently used oral soft tissue grafting techniques.
