Laser De-epithelialization of Autogenous Gingival Graft for Root Coverage and Soft Tissue Augmentation Procedures
Lin, Ching-Yi / Nevins, Myron / Kim, David M.
The purpose of this case report was to introduce a novel technique for de-epithelializing autogenous gingival graft that can be combined with coronally advanced flap for root coverage and soft tissue augmentation. This technique allows for easier, predictable harvesting of connective tissue of excellent quality and quantity without inclusion of undesirable submucosa or adipose tissues. Reduced surgical chair time and double protection of the donor site using the combination of cyanoacrylate and periodontal dressing allowed for uneventful postoperative healing.
