Share Abstract:

The use of gingival autografts that contain submucosa in the repair of mucogingival defects in maxillary molars: Case reports


Pages: 693-700
PMID: 8121984

Many studies have shown that deep and wide gingival recessions can be predictably covered by free gingival autografts. Most of the autografts in these studies were performed on single-rooted teeth. This article presents a rationale for a new technique that repairs this type of defect in maxillary molar areas by means of thick masticatory mucosa autografts that intentionally include not only the lamina propria, but also portions of the submucosa. In addition, a new suturing approach that allows adequate adaptation of the donor tissue to the recipient site and permits relocation of the graft is proposed. This new approach has been shown to be a significant advantage in the anatomically problematic maxillary molar area.
