Mucosa present in implant ready for uncovering: Case for Alloderm?

Last Updated March 30, 2018

This patient presented to to my office with a Conelog implant placed 6 months ago by a dentist in another state. This is what the tissue looks like currently. I do not think it is worth uncovering, fabricating a screw retained abutment and crown and hoping for the best.

Any recommendations on how to best handle this situation? I do not have any experience with using Alloderm (human acellular dermis) in these situations. When I place implants, I try to take care of the tissue so as to not let this happen. It appears that the dentist used a large tissue punch when he placed this implant. Thoughts?
