Soft tissue on #5/6 and #11/12
I have a question for Dr. Maurice Salama:
Last week I placed two connective grafts on #5/6 and #11/12 areas with the commercially available grafting material.
This week when the patient came in, the graft material is exposed on #6 and #11. Patient is not in pain, but stated that he is "uncomfortable". The areas appear swollen.
What should I do now? Do I cut out the portion that is exposed or do I leave the graft material there? I have advised the patient the possibility of re-grafting the area in the future.
