Participants will experience an in-depth exploration of the concepts and practical applications for both Free Gingival and Connective Tissue Grafts.

• Gingival Grafts create zones of attached gingiva where neither root coverage nor esthetics are factors. They provide a predictable way to stop recession from progressing. 

• Connective Tissue Grafts are useful for total root coverage in cases of severe recession, especially in the maxilla where esthetics are important.

This workshop is for dentists who want to offer soft tissue grafting or learn more about enhancing esthetic restorative results. The full day course offers the opportunity to practice both procedures on pig jaws, as well as many case illustrations and two surgical videos of the grafting procedure. Please note that taking this course is not a guarantee of competency, as this is a short-term course meant to introduce providers to these procedures. Gain the peace of mind that you are current in your treatment planning choice, and that you know when it is appropriate or necessary to refer to a specialist!
