Periodontal surgery for the maxillary anterior area
A modified surgical technique, aimed at the conservation of maxillary anterior esthetics, has been proposed for the treatment of maxillary anterior periodontal pathoses that do not respond to traditional, nonsurgical approaches. The modified resective technique gives selective access to the periodontally diseased root surfaces while allowing the periodontist to avoid facial areas with shallow pockets. This paper describes the technique in detail and discusses its indications, advantages, and disadvantages.
