Figure 3: (a) At two-thirds of the distance between the two teeth, a full-thickness horizontal incision would be prolonged on the palatal side. Two incisions, parallel to each other in a buccopalatal direction, would be made to create a partial-thickness flap extending in the palate, leaving the periosteum intact. (b) Healing abutments would be later inserted and a semilunar incision would be made in the direction of the contralateral side of the strip. (c) The pedicles would be disengaged and rotated toward the palatal direction to fill the inter-proximal space
