Nejat Nizam, DDS, PhD/Aliye Akcalı, DDS, PhD


PMID: 29451928
DOI: 10.11607/prd.2736

The aim of these case reports was to introduce a simplified novel connective tissue graft (CTG) harvesting technique, the ring method, which could be used in the maxillary tuberosity area in particular. A special CTG harvesting punch was fabricated to obtain a ring-shaped CTG that had a uniform thickness. The ring graft was then used for peri-implant soft tissue augmentation with successful clinical outcomes. The ring method is a technically insensitive and minimally invasive surgical procedure that provides a certain amount of CTG for various periodontal plastic surgical interventions.
