A thick bipedicled flap was raised with a semilunar incision in the alveolar mucosa and a marginal incision was extended to the adjacent papilla. The root surface was made concave by curets and burs to create space for regeneration. The membrane was fixed to the cemento-enamel junction and… CONTINUE READING
