Aesthetic Anterior Implant Restoration: Using adinguide™

Dr. Jay Rubin

Present Situation

The patient presented with fractured tooth #8 and varying gingivia heights between teeth #8 and #9.

The patient was extremely esthetic-conscious, which added an extra layer of complexity to the treatment plan.

Clinical Solution

Patient opted for removing tooth #8 for an implant, which was planned and performed using the Adinguide™ guided implant surgery system, along with autogenous bone graft from an osteotomy. This was supplemented with demineralized freeze-dried bone and PRF sticky bone to promote healing and integration of the implant.

A subepithelial connective tissue graft was applied to the facial aspect of the implant site using a microsurgical blade. This helped to achieve the desired gingival contour and height, meeting the patient’s aesthetic demands.

The images accompanying this case study provide a detailed visual representation of the procedure. They highlight the precision of the guided implant surgery and the effectiveness of the grafting techniques in achieving the desired aesthetic outcomes.

This case study demonstrates the importance of a tailored and patient-centric approach to dental implant procedures. It shows how advanced technologies, like Adin’s guided implant surgery system, can help meet the aesthetic demands of even the most discerning patients.
