PAPILLAE RECONSTRUCTION SURGERY
Papilla is the sharp triangular portion formed between two teeth There may be several reasons for loss of papilla height and the establishment of “black triangles” between teeth. The most common reason in the adult individual is plaque‐associated lesions. However, abnormal tooth shape, improper contours of prosthetic restorations, and traumatic oral hygiene procedures may also negatively influence the outline of the interdental soft tissues.
