A number of soft-tissue techniques are available to the modern practitioner. These techniques complement one another and are not mutually exclusive, with each having its indications, benefits, risks and limitations. The choice of what technique to use for any given case depends on individual patient parameters, esthetic and functional goals, patient expectations, disease status and many other factors. A good understanding of these factors will help the prudent practitioner choose the best option for each patient and be able to provide them with a realistic expectation of the results, ensuring success and patient satisfaction.
