Dr. C asks:
Most of the time I have no problems with gaining tension free primary closure. But, on a few larger cases I have had some earlier incision line opening. So far none of these have caused graft/implant infection or failure. But I want to avoid these situations in the future. What is the consensus on using free gingival graft (FGG) or connective tissue graft (CTG) as a membrane over the top of graft sites with slight exposure of the FGG or CTG, if primary closure is not fully obtained?
