CRUZ MORALES, Rosario; CABALLERO LOPEZ, Dunia; CAPIRO RUBIO, María del C  y  LIMA REYNA, María Teresa. Free autograft of connective tissue and epithelia in implants for overdenture (First stage). Presentation of a case. Rev. Med. Electrón. [online]. 2011, vol.33, n.3, pp.376-382. ISSN 1684-1824.

The implantation is defined as the surgical treatment directed to insert or introduce a tissue, an organ, or a material, named implant, in the tissues of the oral cavity. The dental implant corresponds with this definition and its goal is the prosthetic rehabilitation. In the last years, the aesthetic has played a great role in the success of periodontics and implantology. The mucous-gingival surgery includes surgical procedures designed to correct defects in the gingival morphology, position and dimensions around the tooth and an implant. To increase the quantity of the keratinized perimplantar tissue is one of the objectives of these procedures directed to limit the periimplantitis and to make the implant more long-lasting. This article presents the report of the case of a patient, aged 54 years old, superior and inferior totally edentulous, and carrying a total acrylic prosthesis. She assisted the multidisciplinary consultation of Implantology of the Specialized Teaching Stomatologic Clinic III Congreso del PCC of Matanzas, remitted from the primary attention service for having inferior prosthetic instability caused by alveolar atrophy, scarce keratinized tissue in the edentulous ridges, requiring an assessment for putting implants and after rehabilitating with an overdenture. We decided to cover the implants with free autografts of connective tissue and epithelia after implanting. We present the treatment applied and the evolution of the case through a clinical following in its first stage.
