The creation of an aesthetic smile with a gingival architecture in harmony with the adjacent dentition remains the final objective in dentistry. The challenge in Perio-Implantology is to manage the hard/soft tissue complex and to be as close as possible to the natural smile appearance of the patient in the aesthetic zone. The process of soft and hard tissue healing must be understood and incorporated into a carefully coordinated sequence of therapy.

The soft tissue aspect following implant treatment in the anterior zone called the “Pink Esthetic” is the most sensitive point and the one that presents the most challenges.

The essential prerequisites in order to establish an optimal harmonious aesthetic result should always remain a precise, comprehensive biological and prosthetic diagnosis as well as the choice of the most conservative, appropriate, and least traumatic treatment for the patient and achieve a successful aesthetic outcome, always based on scientific evidence.

A major evolution in Perio-Implantology has taken place with less invasive surgery, more sophisticated approaches and using Digital Flow, has modify the surgical approaches.
