Reconstruction of the Interdental Papilla with an Underlying Subepithelial Connective Tissue Graft: Technical Considerations and Case Reports

Nelson Carranza, Dr Odont, MSc/Carim Zogbi, Odont

PMID: 21845236
DOI: 10.11607/prd.00.1000

This article introduces a surgical technique developed to achieve soft tissue augmentation of the interproximal space. The technique was designed to minimize surgical trauma and blockage of blood supply to the existing papilla by accessing the papillary area through vertical incisions and by elevating a single full-thickness flap without disrupting the papillary bridge. A free connective tissue graft was placed beneath the undermined papilla and secured with sutures. Advantages and variations of the technique are discussed.
