Recent studies into the behaviour of soft tissues and their properties, continuous improvement in the knowledge of healing mechanisms after mucogingival surgery and findings on the importance of soft tissues in maintaining peri-implant health, have considerably increased the use and reliability of soft tissue surgery. Surgical techniques previously used only on single teeth have been now been transferred to implants as well as for the treatment of lesions affecting multiple sites.
