Mucogingival deformity: best plan?

Case Posted By:  Dr. Daniel Gober

This 45 year old female presented to have implant #30 restored. She is aware that its position leaves a lot to be desired but she will not consider removing the implant and replacement. There is an obvious mucogingival deformity that you would like to address. What plan would you propose to provide an adequate zone of keratinized tissue on both the buccal and lingual of the implant prior to restoring it?
