Dr. Thoma promised to answer the one questions that he could not answer during the webinar, so here it is:
What is the difference between free gingiva graft and free connective tissue grafts? What is the indication of them seperately? Prof. Thomas: "Dear Participant, thank you for the question. The difference is that FGGs consist of connective tissue and epithelium and are indicated to augmented keratinized tissue around teeth and implants. CTGs consist of connective tissue only and are placed submerged (closed healing). CTGs are indicated to augment soft tissue volume (without regenerating keratinized tissue)."
