DynaMatrix: To increase keratinized tissue thickness at the time of implant placement: A case report

AUTHOR(S): Dr. Priyanka Chopra, Dr. Shalini Kapoor and Dr. Anjali Dudeja
ABSTRACT:The adequate amount of keratinized mucosa to maintain health around implants is controversial. Recently, a xenogenic extracellular collagen matrice was successfully used to augment keratinized tissue around teeth and implants reporting comparable results to that achieved with auto grafts. A 34 year male patient complains of missing tooth in lower right back tooth region. He was having deficient keratinized tissue thickness i.e 1.81 mm. The xenogenic extracellular membrane placed over the bone on the buccal aspect of the implant at the time of implant placement. After 3 months it shows increased in keratinized tissue thickness i.e 3.4 mm. Color, Contour and texture was comparable with contralateral site.
