Course Outline: This lecture will begin by analyzing the esthetic zone and factors to consider when evaluating a smile. It will also define mucogingival defects and discuss their etiology.

These cases will be used to illustrate the range of periodontal plastic surgical techniques that can be used to provide optimal esthetic outcomes. The surgical techniques that I will show will predominantly fall into 4 categories: Connective tissue grafts; Free gingival grafts; Tunnelling techniques; and Pedicle grafts

1)Define Mucogingival Defect
2)Be able to discuss elements of an "ideal smile"
