Deepithelialized free gingival graft using micro ophthalmic blade for the treatment of gingival recessions: A case series

AUTHOR(S): Ritam Kundu, Rajul Chordia, Sangita Show, Aniket Chatterji, Ashit Kr. Pal and Somen Bagchi
ABSTRACT:Gingival recession leads to impaired esthetics and dentinal hypersensitivity and the treatment of such defects with free gingival grafts often pose a challenge, clinically, due to difficulties in harvesting the palatal free gingival graft owing to anatomical variations. This paper will account for a series of cases using de-epithelialized FGG (de-FGG) in the treatment of inadequate width of keratinized tissue and gingival recession using micro-ophthalmic blade. The use of micro-ophthalmic blades, used with magnifying loupe has been found to offer advantages of microsurgical periodontics.
