The outcomes of regenerative therapy in the esthetic area are not only the resolution of the intrabony defect but also the improvement of the soft tissue esthetic appearance. The proposed procedure combines a papilla preservation technique with a connective tissue graft below the coronally advanced flap to act as the buccal “soft tissue wall” of the intrabony defect treated with amelogenin to increase the blood clot stability in order to obtain periodontal regeneration and improve the esthetic result. Soft tissue prognostic factors influencing the selection criteria for regenerative therapy or tooth extraction will be discussed.

Healing after tooth extraction for periodontal reasons is accompanied by substantial resorption of the alveolar ridge. Such changes are of particular relevance in the esthetic zone because they make the replacement of teeth and the reconstruction of dento-facial harmony challenging. A soft tissue approach for implant placement in the esthetic area of a tooth extracted for periodontal disease will be described in detail. The connective tissue platform is an advanced mucogingival technique that allows augmentation of both the apical-coronal and buccal-lingual aspects of single and multiple edentulous sites. This technique will be presented step by step to solve challenging cases in the implant rehabilitation in the aesthetic area, especially in the case of peri-implant papilla reconstruction.
