The loss of the papilla can lead to cosmetic deformities, phonetic problems and lateral food impaction. Several reasons contribute
to the loss of interdental papillae and the establishment of “black triangles” between teeth. In 1996, Han and Takei
proposed a novel approach based on the use of a semi-lunar incision placed in the alveolar mucosa of the interdental area.
The present case report, utilizing their approach, showed that within limits papillary reconstruction is achievable.
