Vestibular incision subperiosteal tunnel access (VISTA) can be used in oral plastic surgery (OPS) to address a variety of soft tissue and bone deficiencies around teeth and implants. The concept of VISTA is very well-aligned with plastic surgical principles, offering many surgical advantages, including 1) ease of release of tissues for tension-free mobilization of mucosa to be repositioned, 2) access for placement of a variety of graft materials directly over deficient sites, 3) avoidance of the need for papilla incision, and 4) stabilization of tissues with bonded sutures for effective regeneration. In addition, there are biological advantages, such as preservation of the blood supply and enhanced healing. VISTA has a variety of applications in periodontal root coverage, peri-implant mucosal dehiscence coverage, periodontal/peri-implant regeneration, contour augmentation, and phenotype modification therapy. The scientific basis for all of the concepts will be presented. This course offers practical technical and clinical experience with advanced applications of VISTA for periodontal soft tissue reconstruction.
