This are some of the advantages of using expanded healing abutments over regular healing abutments:
1-. Emergence profile is formed from the time of implant placements and stability of crestal bone in contact with soft tissues leaning over the abutment maintains the original architecture.
2-. The use in atrophic ridges allows to keep the abutment and no need for primary closure so no need for periosteum release and no tension at this area.
3-. The use in post extraction socket on immediate implant placement avoids particle loss by closing the area.
4-. As second stage surgery it allows the tissues to form in a divergence shape emergence profile avoiding square & residual food retention areas below the future restoration.
