Rights and Permissions

The modified surgical flap technique for placement of implant in the anterior maxilla has been described. The flap design has been used to achieve optimal soft-tissue contour for implant restoration. A modification in the surgical technique has been employed with the intention to preserve the interdental papilla, which is the key to the maintenance of hygiene and esthetics around anterior implants. This, in turn, prevents black triangles and improves soft-tissue contours. The modified surgical flap method maintains both functional and esthetic values.
