Soft tissue surgery includes a two-stage approach with primary surgery (phase I) for securing and stabilization of periodontal and periimplant soft tissues, and secondary surgery (phase II, optional) with appropriate tools to reconstructing the defect site. Clinical outcomes of phase II therapy are frequently overestimated. This chapter applies the basic rules of reconstructive surgery to periodontal and implant dentistry.
