Figure 3: Soft tissue augmentation using vascularized interpositional connective tissue graft (VIP‑CT) (a) Baseline presentation with submerged implants (b) Implant exposure with abutment placement (c) Initial rotation of connective tissue graft pedicle from palatal site as shown in (d), (e) temporary crown prior to placement (f) Seated temporary crowns with connective tissue pedicle interposed in between the two to create papilla (g) Palatal harvest site sutured. The connective tissue pedicle is tunneled below the sutured site to the buccal recipient site. Compare augmented site (f) with baseline (c) (Soft tissue surgery: Dr. Neel Bhatavadekar)
