      Abstract

      Reconstructing an esthetic interimplant papilla remains challenging with implant-supported restorations, especially for patients with a thin gingival biotype. This technique report describes a modified approach to rebuilding an interimplant papilla by joining 2 elevated connective tissue flaps at the second-stage surgery.
