Abstract

Ridge contour defects around dental implants are caused by underlying bony defects. Although adequate bone may exist to obtain stability of the implant, irregular bony anatomy can result in an unnatural appearance of the final crown. Particulate onlay grafting to support the peri-implant soft tissue along with tension-free closure while using pedicle papilla regeneration techniques can convert unaesthetic gingival contours into favorable sites.
