Connective Tissue Grafts with Nonincised Papillae Surgical Approach for Periodontal Reconstruction in Noncontained Defects
Moreno Rodríguez, Jose A. / Ortiz Ruiz, Antonio J. / Zamora, Guillermo Pardo / Pecci-Lloret, Miguel / Caffesse, Raúl G.
This case report presents the preliminary results of combining a modification of the nonincised papillae surgical approach (NIPSA), attempting to improve outcomes in the treatment of teeth with advanced periodontal support loss. The modification added a connective tissue graft (CTG) in the buccal aspect of these unfavorable cases caused by deep buccal bone dehiscence, soft tissue deficiencies, or tooth malposition (especially when positioned outside the bony contour). Deep, intrabony, noncontained defects affecting the maxillary incisors were treated in four patients. At the 1-year follow-up, all cases showed an improvement in the marginal soft tissue with considerable reductions in periodontal pocket depth and gains in clinical attachment. NIPSA plus CTG seem to improve clinical outcomes in deep, noncontained intrabony defects.
