The objective of the study is to evaluate whether there is a positive correlation between the gingival thickness, width of the zone of gingival keratinized tissue and periodontal status.
Width of the attached gingiva in this study was determined by the same technique, by subtracting the sulcus probing depth (free gingiva) from the total width of the keratinized tissue (from the tip of gingival margin upto mucogingival junction).
A study was done to evaluate the safety of a tissue-engineered human ex vivo-produced oral mucosa equivalent (EVPOME) in intraoral grafting procedures and they have arrived at a result stating that this technique provides the ability to augment keratinized tissue around teeth (18).
7 Indications for lateral pedicle grafts are sufficient width, length , thickness of keratinized tissue.
The presence of keratinized tissue next to an oral implant presents greater benefits than with natural teeth since the keratinized gingiva has more hemidesmosomes and hence provides greater strength to the implant soft tissue interface; also, the submerged implant is less likely to become exposed during the healing process.
There must be enough alveolar bone sup- port in all dimensions with sufficient attached keratinized tissue to allow for stabilization of the transplanted tooth.
6 So far very little data are available on the efficacy of topical fluconazole on mycoses of keratinized tissue, and experience with this therapy is limited.
The periodontal flap technique is frequently considered when large areas (more than 6 teeth) require treatment, osseous defects are present or in cases where gingivectomy would remove excessive amounts of keratinized tissue resulting in the development of a mucogingival defect.
The palate is probably the most favorable area for miniscrew placement because there is easy access, low risk of damaging important anatomical structures and there is attached keratinized tissue along its entire length.
Dermatophytosis is one of the dermal mycosis that results from the group of fungus actions in the keratinized tissue (such as hair, nail, and skin keratinized tissue) that called dermatophytes.
