Increasing clinical recognition of mucogingival defects including gingival recession may require Periodontal Plastic Surgery (Mucogingival soft tissue surgery). Free Gingival Grafts (Autogenous and Allograft) are used to augment existing lack of keratinized gingival or enhance a pre-implant or pre-prosthetic site.
Connective Tissue (Autogenous and Allograft) are used for root coverage or to enhance a thin biotype for prosthetic or esthetic improvements of soft tissue. This course includes lecture, video, and hands-on (pig jaws) opportunities to understand these concepts and apply them to clinical practice.
