View from the Chairside: The Pursuit of Excellence – Connective Tissue Grafting
It is always a pleasure to sit down with Dr. Paul Belzycki and learn from his long clinical experience. This time, he prepared a case about connective tissue grafting, a technique which enables him to prepare healthy sites where teeth restorations will live a long and healthy life.
Dr. Belzycki is a general dentist, leading a private practice in Toronto for four decades. And, as usual we are very grateful and thankful for his valuable contribution and continued support.
We always want to hear your thoughts and questions about this post and other topics.

Dr. Belzycki’s Thoughts
A healthy periodontal complex is vital for the long-term survival of teeth, particularly if restorations are being planned or placed on those teeth. A wide and thick zone of attached gingiva is an important component of that complex. When this is lacking, autogenous connective tissue grafting and/or free gingival grafting, has historically been the gold standard for developing an adequate zone of attached gingiva. This presentation concerns itself with this protocol and it is hoped that insight is provided to those clinicians that are not familiar with it.
