Periosteal Transposition Flap for Graft Coverage and Ridge Preservation in the Aesthetic Zone.
MetadataShow full item record
Implant treatment in esthetic zone has been challenging for a long time. To achieve the best results optimum amounts of alveolar bone and soft tissue especially attached gingiva is needed. We presented the use of inverted periosteal flap which is a periosteal transposition flap in an esthetic zone. This flap may play a significant role in ridge augmentation and socket preservation in the esthetic zone and could be considered as an alternative for other local flaps. This flap provides sufficient-soft tissue coverage and reduces the risk of dehiscence.
