Free gingival graft for soft tissue management

Posted on By Cristian Rotaru In Soft Tissue Enhancement

FGG following a bone augmentation procedure for soft tissue enhancement on the left mandible.
This is just one step in a staged full mandible implant supported prosthetic rehabilitation.
Bone graft on the right mandible is next and then extractions of the frontal teeth is planned with postextractional implant placements.

Beautiful video, you make it look very easy. Well done! Just one question, why not use resorbable sutures? At least when you are suturing the flap to the periosteum in the newly created vestibulum? Thanks

Thank you !

Yes, you could use resorbable, they work very well if they are monofilament though.
I would not use multifilament.

Very nice video and very nicely performed procedure, thank you for sharing, dear Christian.
What do you think about FGG during implant osseointegration (or prior to the block, or prior to the implant placement)? This way, the vertical soft tissue would be enhanced. At least FGG at the time of implant uncovering?
Suture is absorbable monofilament I guess?

Hi, Snjezana.
Thank you .

The FGG was done following a bone augmentation with titanium meshes fixated to implant ( Igen membrane ).

I dont do FGG during healing period when i use titanium mesh as the risk of accidental exposure of the membrane is very high when manipulating the tissue.
I prefer not to risk doing brave surgeries just to shorten the treatment for the patient by 2-3 weeks .

I always do it after the mesh removal with stable tissues.

Thanks !
