What is the difference between CTGs (Connective Tissue Grafts) or FGGs (Free Gingival Grafts)?
Definitions of different soft tissue grafts.
Connective Tissue Grafts (CTG) are most commonly harvested from the palate or tuberosity composed of the inner layer of connective tissue below the gingival tissue. Free Gingival Grafts (FGG) are harvested from the palate or tuberosity as a full thickness graft involving the gingival tissue and underlying connective tissue.
If you have a situation where the potential harvest site has insufficient tissue to provide adequate harvest volume, then an option exists in the form of Acellular Dermal Matrices or ADMs. Our version is known as Neoderm ADM.
