Abstract

Gingival thickness is a clinical characteristic which should be given more consideration in evaluating muco-gingival problems. It is proposed that thick gingiva prevents gingival recession and is of particular significance when fixed prosthesis is being employed. The technique outlined includes a connective graft from the lamina propria of the palatal mucosa into the gingival connective tissue. A case report documents the technique.
