This study will compare a new technique of free gingival graft to the original one, in order to evaluate the stability of the graft volume over one year and other variables. Twenty patients will receive the original technique of free gingival graft (controls) and twenty patients will receive the modified technique, in which the free gingival graft is submerged (tests), at the inferior incisors area.
The free gingival graft surgery is held to gain some keratinized tissue in areas where it has been lost, such as in inferior incisors with gingival recessions. In these areas, tooth brushing may become harder and painful, negatively influencing in plaque control. However, this type of graft seems to contract over time. A new approach of free gingival graft, in which the graft is covered by a flap, promises to provide greater vascularization. This would promote less graft contraction and better mucosal color. Fourty patients with less than 2 mm of keratinized tissue (measured from gingival margin to mucogingival junction) in at least one inferior incisor will be included. Half will receive the original technique and half will receive the modified one. Patients will be followed at 7, 14, 21, 28, 42 days, 3, 6 and 12 months after surgeries.

The aim of this study is to compare the effect of mesial and distal adjacent gingival biotypes of the tooth / teeth region of free gingival graft (FGG) on the shrinkage ratio of graft at 6...
The aim of this study is to compare the influence of two different energy densities for photobiomodulation on recovery of palatal donor area after free gingival graft technique.
The hypothesis for the present study is that patient-based outcomes and gingival blood flow will be more favorable for the free gingival graft (FGG) donor sites being covered by the test w...
Several surgical techniques have been proposed to correct recession defect and attain root coverage. Though, the majority were executed on Miller Class I and II recession defects. Moreover...
The purpose of this study is to evaluate Omega-3 Wound™ as an alternative to autogenous free gingival grafts harvested from the palate to treat human subjects with insufficient KT (< 2 m...
This study evaluated clinical outcomes of acellular dermal matrix (ADM) allograft compared with autogenous free gingival graft (FGG) for gingival augmentation after 15 years.
To evaluate the clinical effect of modified free gingival graft technique of the peri-implant.
This longitudinal clinical study aimed to determine the amount of creeping attachment and its relation to baseline recession depth after placement of free gingival grafts (FGG) apical to class I, II, ...
Sup-epithelial connective tissue graft (SCTG) and de-epithelialized gingival graft (DGG) approaches have been investigated with a focus on post-operative morbidity but not from a clinical outcome stan...
The purposes of this split-mouth pilot study were to investigate the efficacy of the Er:YAG laser use for the de-epithelialization of the palatal graft in the treatment of the multiple gingival recess...
Excessive growth of the gingiva either by an increase in the size of the constituent cells (GINGIVAL HYPERTROPHY) or by an increase in their number (GINGIVAL HYPERPLASIA). (From Jablonski's Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p574)
The immune responses of a host to a graft. A specific response is GRAFT REJECTION.
Techniques used to expose dental surface below the gingival margin in order to obtain better dental impression during periodental and peri-implant applications. The retraction of the gingival tissue can be achieved surgically (e.g., laser gingivectomy and rotary curettage) or chemically with a retraction cord.
An abnormal extension of a gingival sulcus not accompanied by the apical migration of the epithelial attachment.
An immunological attack mounted by a graft against the host because of tissue incompatibility when immunologically competent cells are transplanted to an immunologically incompetent host; the resulting clinical picture is that of GRAFT VS HOST DISEASE.
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
