Both periodontal and periimplant tissues share morphological and functional characteristics. This allows adapting common used periodontal techniques to the implantology. Nowadays, it is a normal practice to manage the soft periimplant tissues in a correct way, in order to improve the periimplant environment. The aim of this article is to make a literature review of all these concepts as well as the application of some periodontal techniques to the field of the implantology.
