Epithelial-conjunctive graft or full thickness graft.
The graft taken is total: keratinized epithelium + connective tissue. This type of graft mainly allows an increase and a reinforcement of the keratinized gum (i.e. its surface is covered with several layers of resistant cells which make it thicker and firmer, in particular on the palate and on the other zones subjected to friction during mastication). It can allow a more or less important covering (rarely total) of the root. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)
