Abstract

The deficient labial ridge can present aesthetic problems for the patient and technical problems for the restorative dentist. The learning objective of this report is a technique for obtaining connective tissue from an adjacent donor site in the form of a pedicle and positioning it beneath a partial thickness flap. The technique offers advantages over previous methods in terms of patient comfort, vascularization of the graft, and specific placement of the grafted connective tissue.
