Soft-tissue collar around implants: A periodontal compromise or not?
from Dental Tribune International
How many times have you seen a case during an examination where the soft-tissue collar was less than you would like to have? How many times has this happened on one of your own cases? Well, it has no doubt happened to all of us at one time or another. The perfect analogy to use and consider, especially when speaking to patients, is the outer surface of the hand versus the palm of the hand. Both are skin, but which one is tougher? Obviously, the palm is.
