Note appearance of tissues demonstrating
the shrinkage and adaptation of soft tissues
and improved color appearance.

Results
On follow-up, the patient showed marked
improvement and reported satisfaction with
his treatment. He reported that postoperative
pain was nearly nonexistent as a result of the
minimal flap and no osseous reduction surgery.
Clinically, the pockets were resolved, the bone
showed radiographic evidence of repair, and
the patient reported feeling better immediately.
In keeping with his college athletic career, the
patient jogged regularly and reported the effort
required to do his usual workout has lessened.
He stated that he felt stronger and faster. No
postoperative culturing was done. Periodontal
measurements continued to show stability
(Figures 6, 7a, and 7b).
