General Membership Meeting - Patient Friendly Minimally Invasive Soft Tissue Grafting

Edward P. Allen, DDS, PhD

Root coverage grafting has progressed from use of palatal donor tissue to the use of allografts and xenografts. 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.

Learning Objectives:

  • Indications for soft tissue grafting with the tunnel technique
  • How to evaluate the outcome of tunnel grafting procedures
  • Indications for access incisions
  • Special pre-surgical considerations for grafting implant sites
  • Special surgical considerations for grafting implant sites
