Connective Tissue Graft Stabilization by Subperiosteal Sling Suture for Periodontal Plastic Surgery Using the VISTA Approach
Jonathan H. Do, DDS

The art of mucogingival surgery continues to be an area of great interest to the readership of PRD. In this issue, Dr Jonathan Do re-envisions root-coverage procedures with the assistance of a vestibular approach and the use of the subperiosteal sling suturing technique. His article, “Connective Tissue Graft Stabilization by Subperiosteal Sling Suture for Periodontal Plastic Surgery Using the VISTA Approach,” demonstrates this technique with excellent clinical cases and illustrations of the technique. Case examples include prominent roots with 3- to 5-mm recessions and include a lingual root-coverage procedure. The technique utilizes a 6-mm vertical incision, remote from the treatment site and extending into a full-thickness tunnel, allowing for the root-coverage procedure with a connective tissue graft. The tunneled flap is coronally advanced for primary closure. Dr Do reminds us of the balance between art and science and how we can enhance our surgical results by combining these thoughts to produce less-invasive techniques with outstanding results.
