A novel incision design for interdental papilla reconstruction
AUTHOR(S): Debajyoti Mondal, Ritam Kundu, Avishek Das and Sanchita Samajpati
The loss of interdental papilla poses a challenging situation following excision of sessile growth in the interdental papillae. In such a scenario connective tissue graft (CTG) is considered the gold standard for reconstruction of papilla. In this case report a novel incision design was performed immediately after excision of a sessile mass buccally, preserving the marginal gingiva of adjacent tooth.
Gradual surgical healing with minimal postoperative morbidity and very slight discomfort was observed at 1 week. The clinical observation at 4weeks revealed complete healing, alongwith the reconstructed interdental papilla.
The result seem to suggest that the novel incision design alongwith with CTG can provide a valid treatment procedure in reconstruction of interdental papilla.
