Lecture/Hands-On Course
Hands-on Gingival and
Connective Tissue Grafting Course

James Kohner, D.D.S.

This course discusses and evaluates the use of two different soft tissue grafts. It includes detailed indications, contra-indications and multiple case examples of Free Gingival and Connective Tissue Grafts. The surgical exercises use pig jaws to allow participants the
opportunity of harvesting, placing and suturing both types of grafts. Gingival Grafts are excellent for creating zones of attached gingiva where neither root coverage nor esthetics are factors. They provide a predictable way to stop recession from progressing. Connective Tissue Grafts are very useful for total root coverage in cases of severe recession, especially in the maxilla where esthetics is important.

This workshop is for the dentist who wants to offer soft tissue grafting to their patients or to someone who just wants to learn more about enhancing esthetic restorative results. Two video demonstrations of surgical techniques are included.

A workbook detailing the procedures is included.

At the conclusion, participants should be able to:
• Learn diagnostic criteria for graft selection
• Understand indications for each type of graft
• Understand limitations of each type of graft
• Step-by-step harvesting, placing and suturing
• Step-by-step use of specialized instruments
