The purpose of this study is to present new flap designs for the prevention of postoperative gingival recession adjacent to maxillary anterior sites that received dental implants. Nine patients received 10 implants in the maxillary anterior region. Gingival morphotypes and smile lines were evaluated prior to implant placement. Gingival probing depths, clinical attachment levels, and recession were recorded at teeth adjacent to implant sites at the initial exam and 3 months after implant… CONTINUE READING
