Digital assisted soft tissue sculpturing (DASS) technique for esthetically driven full arch implant restoration with long-lasting clinical performance To introduce a novel digitally assisted and biologically driven surgical and prosthetic technique to achieve the ideal soft and bone tissue interface for full arch implant supported fixed dental prosthesis. DASS technique allows the previsualization of the ideal soft and bone tissue interface and fabricate a CAD-CAM pink free interim prosthesis for immediate loading. The DASS technique is a predictable surgical and prosthetic integrated digital workflow that simplifies the achievement of a scalloped tissue interface, re-establishing the mucosal dimension required for the protection of underlying bone while maintaining tissue health to guarantee long term success. The surgical sculpturing and maturation of the soft and bone tissue is driven and enhanced by the xenogeneic collagen matrix grafting properly positioned in order to achieve a qualitative and quantitative solid interface. The xenogeneic collagen matrix and the interim prosthesis are used as a biologic and prosthetic scaffold to boost the soft tissue healing and sculpturing in order to embrace and integrate a pink free highly esthetic complete arch prosthesis.

A New Solution for Customized Bone Regeneration for Complex Alveolar Ridge Defects One of the greatest challenges facing clinicians is to place implants in an ideal position in sites compromised by trauma, periodontal disease and/or severe infection, where significant bone augmentation is necessary. Recent studies have confirmed that implants, placed after vertical augmentation by means of Titanium Meshes and followed by an adequate supportive care program, offer predictable long-term results. This program will show that careful selection of a proper bone-grafting technique and soft tissue augmentation can produce good functional and esthetic results. Furthermore, a modern fully customized CAD/CAM technology to satisfy patient-specific requirements regarding a planned bone augmentation will be presented.
Traditional treatment options such as a Connective Tissue Graft or a Free Gingival Graft are effective, but have several limitations:
