It has been said, “Bone set the tone, but tissue is the issue.” In the field of periodontology and implantology, many research interests have been focused on bone regeneration. However, while researchers have accomplished main breakthrough in hard tissue regeneration, clinicians find it is in fact more challenging to deal with soft tissue problems around natural dentition and dental implants. In cases of periodontitis or peri-implantitis, inflammation starts initially within the soft tissue and bone resorption occurs as a consequence of immune response. Therefore, soft tissue integrity is essential for healthy clinical condition and soft tissue management is often a key element to achieve esthetic, function and longevity.
- Describing a variety of clinical situations require soft tissue augmentation

- Discussing different periodontal plastic surgical techniques for soft tissue management around natural dentition and dental implants
