Journal of Oral Science & Rehabilitation 30 Volume 2 | Issue 4/2016 P e r i i m p l a n t s o f t - t i s s u e m a n a g e m e n t requiregraftinganditappearstoradicallyreduce thethickness oftransplanted softtissue. Howe- ver, long-term prospective clinicaltrials eventu- allysupported byhistologicaldata are neededto confirm these clinical findings. Conclusion Within the limitations of the study, this tech- nique appears to minimize the donor site mor- bidity that results from harvesting tissue (skin or gingiva) from elsewhere. In addition, after implant placement and prosthesis loading, the reconstructed tissue appeared stable, fixed aroundtheabutmentandimplantneck,andclin- ically healthy. Further clinical trials are needed to validate this approach. Competing interests Theauthorsdeclarethattheyhavenocompeting interests. 1. Hidalgo DA.
