Although it appears that flaps of tissue would be extremely useful in the management of periodontal problems, limited knowledge of the vascular territories and limited mobility of local tissue has reduced their effective role as reconstructive alternatives. Significantly more research is needed to expand the scope of techniques currently used. The principles of flap surgery discussed in this chapter should stimulate those who seek to develop new techniques and aid those who are clinically directed.
