Abstract

The clinical report describes a case of a 14-year-old patient with a traumatic amputation of the left auricle and severe hypertrophic scarring. The management of peri-implant soft tissue was challenging, but successful in the rehabilitation of a patient with auricular prosthesis retained by implants. The prosthesis restored the patient's facial aesthetics and contributed not only to function, but also to psychosocial well-being.
