Is it time to retire the free gingival graft procedure in light of new alternative tissue grafting materials?
from Surgical Restorative
The free gingival graft is a surgical procedure frequently used in periodontics to increase the amount of keratinized tissue surrounding a tooth or a dental implant. Keratinized tissue plays a major role (around teeth and dental implants), helping to maintain and facilitate oral hygiene. This surgical technique was introduced almost 50 years ago in 1966.
