Implantology in the esthetic zone is always a challenge. Due to this Professor Dr. Hürzeler performs a second stage surgery with a special rolling technique. This case combines implantology in the esthetic zone with a tunnel technique. The deepithelised and prepared flap is rolled into the tunneled area.
A special suture trough in the approximal area helps to lift and stabilise the flap in the right coronal position. The individualised emergence profile of a temporary crown helps to sculpture the tissue. This second stage surgery can help improving tissue stability and increase volume to avoid long term complications due to thin mucosa.
