Boosting of the phenotype with autogenous soft tissue is always the best method not only to develop, but also to maintain the aesthetic outcome around teeth and implants.
Although the treatment for each clinical case is customized, somebody should keep in mind that by applying small modifications of the existed techniques in the clinical practice is able to achieve the desired result.
In this clinical case a modification of the palatal pedicle flap is presented for the pontic development of a tooth-supported prosthesis .
By increasing the length of the harvested flap the folding of the apical border improves the horizontal dimension of this part of the flap. The precise positioning of this part of the PPF exactly above the ridge deficiency with the appropriate suturing is critical.
