The loss of interdental papillae as the result of trauma or inflammatory periodontal disease creates a significant challenge in the esthetic zone. Conventional surgical techniques are unpredictable because of small working spaces and limited blood supply to the area. Vertical releasing incisions can further jeopardize vascular channels and leave unattractive scarring upon healing. The application of microscopes and microsurgical instruments presents a new frontier for predictable esthetic results. This paper describes a predictable microsurgical technique for reconstruction of the interdental papillae. (Int J Periodontics Restorative Dent 2008;28:543549.)
