Medical - Medical: Dentistry / Implant Recession Covering
German term or phrase: selbstständiger Verschluß
"Lösungsansatz

Um dem Patienten ein subepitheliales Bindegewebetransplantat mit Entnahme aus dem Gaumen zu ersparen, wurde nach Entfernung des temporären Aufbaus ein Einheilpfosten eingebracht und bis unter das Gingivaniveau eingekürzt (Abb. 2). Durch freie Granulation kam es zu einem ***selbstständigen Verschluss*** und somit zu einem Ersatz der fehlenden Gewebeanteile (Abb. 3). Um weiteres Gewebe für die vestibuläre Ausformung des Zahnfleischverlaufes zu gewinnen, wurde ein Spaltlappen von palatinal präpariert. Nach Entfernung des Einheilpfostens erfolgten die Eingliederung des definitiven Aufbaus und die Anfertigung einer provisorischen Krone (Dentalon, Heraeus-Kulzer, Dormagen), die mit einem provisorischen Zement (ProCem, Espe, Seefeld) befestigt wurde. Die Lappenfixierung erfolgte wiederum mit einer 7/0 Polypropylen Naht (Premilene, B-Braun, Melsungen). Die Wundheilung verlief komplikationslos. Nach fünf Tagen erfolgte die Nahtentfernung. Abbildung 8 zeigt die stabile Situation nach der chirurgischen Intervention. Zur weiteren Behandlung wurde der Patient zu seinem Hauszahnarzt überwiesen."

From a text that's mainly about covering implant recessions on implants. I don't understand what is meant by "selbstständiger Verschluß" - independent closure??? TIA for any light you can shed on it.

natural closure
Explanation:
As I understand it, natural healing mechanisms (i.e. granulation processes)facilitated a closure of gaps(?)that had been created by the missing tissue portions.

With time, open wounds attempt to close themselves through internal forces. When a wound \"granulates,\" this means that its surface fills with granulation tissue, an appropriate name for the pebbly surface appearance that results from capillary/fibroblast proliferation. The formation of granulation tissue in an open wound corresponds to the fibroblastic phase of primary wound healing.

Thanks Johanna for the usual well-referenced and well-argued answer. "Natural" makes sense in the first instance, while "by itself" should work OK in the second sentence I asked about, but I just wanted to be more sure about it. To Nathan: noted and absolutely right - the correct spelling has duly been used for the glossary entry. The mistake was the author's originally though. Anyway, thanks again to everyone who contributed here - appreciate your help.
