Abstract

Achieving excellence in anterior rehabilitations requires close cooperation between the periodontist and the prosthodontist. Many techniques can be used to restore the lost alveolar hard and soft tissues. The more severe the peri-implant defect, the higher the challenge and lower the predictability of the procedure. The present case consists of Seibert Class III with malaligned implants in the esthetic zone resolved with a cost-modified treatment plan to reestablish esthetics in the anterior maxilla using a rotated palatal flap. The vascularized interpositional periosteal connective tissue graft was effective in augmenting the soft tissue in the esthetic zone and remained stable over a 2-year period. Additional long-term clinical studies are necessary to support these results.
