It CAN be, but...: But it doesn't have to be.! ...It depends on the technique, ; the experience of the periodontist, as well as the patients. That means, depending on the source of the donor tissue, whether it is from the roof of the mouth or from tissue bank ( allograft) can make a huge difference. Please beware that you can`t use allograft tissues for all cases, ; there are specific cases that are more successful.
