Hard and soft tissue augmentation are often essential for ensuring optimal functional and esthetic outcomes in implant therapy. Peri-implant grafting procedures can be performed prior to, at the time of, or after implant placement, and provide the advantages of: a) adequate hard tissue dimensions for restoratively driven implant placement, b) adequate soft tissue dimensions for appropriate emergence profile, and c) adequate hard and soft tissue dimensions for long-term success of the implants and implant-supported prosthesis. In this webinar, different techniques and materials for hard and soft tissue grafting will be presented and the appropriate timing relative to implant placement will be discussed.
