Introduction: Complete marginal soft tissue sealing of the socket after immediate implant placement and / or guided bone regeneration is essential. Among the techniques of socket closure, we highlight the pedicle laps. Objectives: To describe and explain the technique of rotational palatal connective closure of post extraction sockets. Methodology: Case report of agenesis of tooth #15 treated by means of atraumatic extraction of tooth #55 and the technique of rotational palatal connective closure. Results: he patient had a very satisfactory 7-day postoperative follow-up. Conclusion: he technique presents esthetic excellence associated with marginal function and homeostasis, an extra source of nutrition from the pedicle, lower morbidity and absence of an isolated donor site.
Keywords: Connective tissue. Tooth extraction. Periodontics.
