Maintaining aesthetics is the most difficult component of anterior periodontal regeneration. The Whale’s Tail approach employs a novel flap design that achieves both of these objectives while maintaining the functional integrity of the periodontal tissues. Gum bleeding was the main complaint of a 46-year-old man. According to his periodontal assessment, 11 has a probing pocket depth of 7 mm mesially and clinical attachment loss of 8 mm. The whale’s tail approach was used in this case to achieve a 4mm gain in clinical attachment level after 11 months using demineralized freeze-dried bone allograft (DFDBA) and Amnion membrane, according to his periodontal examination. This method successfully demonstrates steady clinical outcomes in diastema situations when it comes to treating anterior periodontal regeneration. Long-term clinical research will be required to validate these findings. The Whale’s Tail procedure combines the aesthetic benefits of papilla preservation with the ease of access to the underlying alveolar bone for regenerative purposes.
