The distance from the crest of marginal gingiva to mucogingival junction was measured by using a divider and the depth of the sulcus in the mid buccal region was measured with the help of a William's periodontal probe to get the width of attached gingiva of incisors, premolars and first molar (a total of 12 teeth) of right quadrant of maxillary and mandibular region.
12) Precise determination of the location of the CEJ and mucogingival junction prior to surgery and precise placement of incisions are necessary in order to achieve optimum esthetics.
Two vertical incisions were given starting at the terminal ends of the horizontal incisions which extended beyond the mucogingival junction.
