  1. why raising the flap?
    extract, degranulate, overfill bone substance+collagen plug.
    It is a minimal procedure, you preserve the papillae

  2. Ziv, you mentioned using probiotics with Cleocin. How do you tell the pt. what to purchase, OTC I presume. And how to take them. What brand of the probiotic do you recommend?

    Very nice case, by the way.
