Loss of gum due to laser: does this case need a gingival graft?

Last Updated April 16, 2019

I have exposed an implant with a laser in an anterior case where keratinised gingiva seemed abundant. When I placed the healing collar, the buccal gingiva was very thin and now it is gone. I had put the cover screw on and the patient is under observation. Do you think now that the healing screw is off the tissue will grow back or does this case need a gingival graft?
