AMNIOTIC MEMBRANES - A FUTURISTIC TREND IN PERIODONTAL REGENERATION

Nashra Kareem.

Abstract
One of the most frequent indications of periodontal plastic surgery is the treatment of gingival
recessions. This treatment has mainly been justified by the patient‟s wish to improve the aesthetic appearance
when there is an exposed root. The ultimate goal of a root coverage procedure is complete coverage of the
recession defect with a good aesthetic appearance related to the adjacent soft tissues, minimal probing depth
following healing and minimal postoperative discomfort. The selection of one surgical technique over another
with the use of particular grafts depends on several factors to achieve optimal regeneration of the lost
periodontal tissues via guided tissue regeneration (GTR). Over the years, various materials have been used as
physical barriers in GTR. One such novel material that has been tried relatively recently is the amniotic or the
placental membrane. The placental allografts possess various properties that may be beneficial as a barrier
membrane in periodontal therapy. Therefore, this review article elaborately explains the basic features, actions
and applications of amniotic membranes that can be used as a remarkable tool in the field of periodontal
regeneration.

Key words: placental membrane, guided tissue regeneration, gingival recession, coronally-advanced flap.
