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.

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  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.
