Increasing attached gingiva around dental implants has beneficial effects in maintaining health and esthetic around the implants. Palatal incision, partial thickness flap and finally apical repositioning the elevated flap is the solution. In the case that the reflected flap is full thickness, such as the need for osteoplasty in the buccal bone or removal of internal fixative devices (screws or miniplate) then preventing the coronal movement of the flap is difficult. Bone suture that is creating a hole in the bone for fixing soft tissue to it is beneficial.
