[Whole-skin transplantation in periodontal surgery].


Open vestibuloplasty in combination with mucogingival surgery has the disadvantage of a high tendency to relapse. The introduction of the gingival graft on to the open periosteum was a considerable improvement. The use of compound flaps taken from the hairless retroauricular region also showed good post-operative results. In addition to good healing and little tendency to shrink, there is the advantage of an ample supply of tissue.
