The strip gingival autograft technique

Han/Takei/Carranza, Jr.

PMID: 8360008
DOI: 10.11607/prd.00.0045

In keeping with the concept of rapid epithelialization of close wound edges, the strip technique was developed to maximize the area of gingival grafting with less trauma to the donor site or the recipient site. An incision is made and a partial-thickness flap is reflected so that stable periosteum is left. The apical mucosal border of the recipient site is sutured to the periosteum. Donor tissues are obtained in 2-mm-wide strips, transferred to the recipient site, and sutured. Dry foil and surgical packing are used to stabilize and protect the site during healing. The donor site is rapidly epithelialized (within 10 days) and produces minimal patient discomfort.
