Traditionally, mucogingival surgery included the procedures for widening the width of attached gingiva, deepening of shallow vestibules, resection of aberrant frenulum and recession coverage. The broadened sphere of periodontal plastic procedures encompasses periodontal-prosthetic corrections; crown lengthening; ridge augmentation; aesthetic surgical corrections; reconstruction of papillae; aesthetic surgical corrections around implants and surgical exposure of unerupted teeth for orthodontics. This book is an attempt to review these procedures and discuss their merits and demerits in the present scenario of increased aesthetic awareness and demand by the patients.
