It was necessary to perform an intrasulcular incision followed by a gingival flap (Figure 2(b)) to allow rubber dam isolation.
After rubber dam removal, the gingival flap was repositioned and the papillae were sutured with 4.0 silk braided nonabsorbable suture material (SMI, Belgium) (Figures 3(a) and 3(b)).
The potential advantage of GTR to a gingival flap procedure is the possibility of having a different healing pattern and ideally achieving periodontal regeneration rather than connective tissue repair of the exposed root surfaces with no additional donor site.

To assist tooth eruption, when tooth impaction is a consequence of gingival enlargement, flap surgery allows for complete exposure of the impacted tooth by apically repositioning a thinned gingival flap. In such cases, gingivectomy could result in complete elimination of the keratinized tissue with possible creation of a mucogingival defect.
Take note that following the D4355, we must determine whether the patient is in such condition that the D0110 will get them back to health, or whether initial periodontal therapy will be needed, such as root planing, gingival flap or osseous surgery.
Glass ionomer offers conducive properties like ease of placement, does not require complete coverage by gingival flap, evidence of formation of long junctional epithelial attachment [14] and lower cost.
(Fig.7, 8) The excess material was removed and smoothened with fine grit points (Fig.9), following which the gingival flaps were sutured in their original position by interrupted method using 4 0 silk sutures (Fig.10) and a periodontal dressing was applied over the site (Fig.
Under local anesthesia the splint was removed and conservative labial and palatal gingival flaps were raised by making intrasulcular incisions to separate the fragment from palatal PDL fibers as well as to determine the extent of fracture line (Fig.
The gingival flaps were repositioned to their original position and sutured with 3-0 black silk (Fig.
