Résumé

Le présent article décrit une modification de la chirurgie traditionnelle du repositionnement de la lèvre supérieure pour corriger l’Exposition Gingivale Excessive (EGE). Le but principal de cette modification est de maintenir la position de la lèvre dans le sens mésio-distal et donc la symétrie de la lèvre afin de donner un sourire esthétique au patient après la chirurgie. Dans cet article, l’approche chirurgicale modifiée a été utilisée pour traiter deux cas de 5 mm d’exposition gingivale excessive lors du sourire forcé due à une lèvre hyperactive. Les résultats cliniques obtenus étaient stables et montrent que cette technique modifiée de repositionnement chirurgical de la lèvre supérieure aboutit à des résultats esthétiquement satisfaisants.

Abstract
Surgical management of excessive gingival display by a modified lip repositioning technique

The present paper describes a modification of the traditional lip repositioning surgery to correct Excessive Gingival Display (EGD). The main purpose of this modification is to maintain the lip position in the mesio-distal direction and then the lip symmetry to give an esthetic smile to the patient after surgery. In this paper, the modified surgical approach was used to treat two cases of EGD with 5 mm of gingival display during full smile due to a hyperactive lip. The clinical outcomes obtained were stable and showed that this modified surgical lip repositioning technique leaded to esthetically satisfactory results.
