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 sever 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.
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
