New Concepts in Biologic Width Space

David L Cochran

David Cochran discusses the role of biologic width in implant dentistry and its importance for soft and hard tissue stability and health around dental implants as well as for the esthetic outcome of implant-supported reconstructions.

This lecture gives an overview of the relevant comparative anatomy and histology surrounding teeth and implants in healthy or pathologic conditions. Emphasis is placed on creating physiologic relationships and minimizing inflammation. The influence of factors such as the implant-abutment interface, timing of loading, surface characteristics, and the presence of inflammation are discussed based on current evidence.

At the end of this Congress Lecture, you should be able to…

  • describe biologic width around teeth and implants and understand how it differs in healthy and pathologic conditions
  • explain the importance of biologic width in preserving peri-implant health and safeguarding an esthetic outcome
  • discuss the influence of the implant-abutment interface, loading, and surface characteristics on the dimensions and quality of the supracrestal soft tissue attachment around implants
