The use of expanded healing abutments. Which are the benefits in periimplant tissues?

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.
