This gum replacement unit is designed to simply create an aesthetic replacement for missing gum tissue associated with bone and soft tissue loss around natural teeth and/or dental implants. It is attached to the implant crown or bridge and is not removable like a denture. It can create a very natural appearance and we use it in cases when gum or bone grafting cannot ensure the most aesthetic result.
This case demonstrates no amount of gum and/or bone grafting could correct the defect. 2 dental implants were placed and the space was restored with an implant bridge and as part of the restoration, some artificial pink gum was used. This is part of the restoration and cannot be removed.
