FARAJI, Mahdi. Papilla reconstruction around the implant using novel technique. Actas Odontol. [online]. 2016, vol.13, n.2, pp.52-55. ISSN 1510-8139.

Rebuilding the pink esthetic is an important issue in modern esthetic implant dentistry, and any compromised esthetic results following implant-supported restorations are considered failures. Several surgical and nonsurgical approaches are proposed in the literature to reconstruct the lost interdental papilla. In this modified technique the distal end of the pedicle graft was divided into two parts creating a bifid, which were then placed around the abutment and sutured on the facial aspect. This technique resulted in a significant gain of papillary volume in both coronal and facial directions. The subepithelial connective pedicle graft associated with a coronally advanced flap seems to be a viable approach for the treatment of missing papilla associated with implant-supported restorations.
