Modern Periodontal plastic surgery

Over the last two decades, several clinical trials showed the predictability of different surgical procedures for root coverage. Furthermore, based on a modern comprehension of defect classifications and a strong biological background, treatment prognosis has become also reliable in defects with adjacent loss of clinical interdental attachment. The goal of the present lecture will be to highlight the critical steps in the development of modern periodontal plastic surgery for obtaining stable clinical outcomes and excellent aesthetics.
