Patient Friendly Minimally Invasive Grafting (That Really Works!)
VCU School of Dentistry Event
Root coverage grafting has progressed from use of palatal donor tissue to the use of allografts. Recipient site preparation has improved from open sites requiring surface incisions to pouch and tunnel preparations without surface incisions. These advances have produced results demonstrated in controlled clinical trials to be equivalent to the more invasive conventional procedures while enhancing patient experience during and after surgery. Application of current minimally invasive grafting surgery to both teeth and implants will be shown.
