Joo Carnio, DDS, MS

PMID: 14984143
DOI: 10.11607/prd.00.0559

The unpredictability of current surgical procedures for papilla reconstruction has been a matter of concern for both periodontists and patients. This case report presents a complete papilla reconstruction in a 20-year-old woman using an interposed subepithelial connective tissue graft. The results show that this technique can be successfully used in treating the loss of papillae and achieving long-term stability. The objective of this report is to describe the surgical technique and comment on the factors that may have influenced the final result. (Int J Periodontics Restorative Dent 2004;24:3137.)
