Colorimetric distribution of human attached gingiva
and alveolar mucosa.
 measured soft tissue stability of the attached gingiva
at baseline and 6 months after augmentation in control and test groups and additionally at post-expansion in the test group, by using an objective 3D metering device.
In mandible a fornix depth was performed using a conformer to earn attached gingiva
(8) The papillomatous variant is less common and is usually located on the masticatory mucosa such as the tongue and attached gingiva
. (8) Although the diagnosis of FEH can sometimes be made by clinical examinations, biopsy is the gold standard for accurate diagnosis.
After completion of the treatment, the exposed incisors exhibited an acceptable gingival contour and attached gingiva
(Figures 6 and 7).
Intraoral examination revealed missing 15, Root canal treated 13,14,16,17, and a solitary well-defined swelling on right side of the hard palate measuring approximately 2x1cm extending anterio-posteriorly from mesial half of 16 to maxillary tuberosity, medio-laterally extending from mid palatine raphae to attached gingiva
Initially it may involve just the papillary & marginal portion of gingiva but may slowly progress to involve the attached gingiva
; if the causative factor is still persisting.
Inox Instrumentos cirurgicos e odontologicos Ltda., Sao Paulo, Brazil), not inserted into the aluminum capsule, since the thickness of the attached gingiva
varies between 1 and 1.5 mm.
A horizontal incision was made on the crest or palatal aspect of edentulous ridge, with extensions beyond the areas of the osteotomy and with consideration of the amount of attached gingiva
on the alveolar crest.
The created space will also provide an adequate zone of attached gingiva
that can act as a donor site for a partial-thickness apically or laterally repositioned flap.
On examination, a firm ovoid swelling of size 3 x 2.5 cm was found on the attached gingiva
with respect to 11 and 12 extending from free marginal groove inferiorly to the buccal sulcus superiorly (Figure 1).
