Builds confidence and develops a skill set with the most utilized Soft Tissue Grafting procedure in Implant Dentistry. And most importantly, increases predictability and long term stability of advanced surgical techniques. It allows the practitioner to be able to handle any complex and contemporary soft tissue issues.”


Soft Tissue Grafting is a surgical method giving the practitioner the ability to:

  • Repair any defects in the oral cavity cause by tooth extraction trauma, or normal wear and tear on the Gingiva
  • The ability to replace any tissue that is compromised or lost. By using gingival grafts, growth factor technology and proper soft tissue management in a predictable way to restore a site to the ideal health and function prior to procedure.
