Both: Both grafts are highly successful. There really is not a "better" one. I do these grafts all week long, and they are appropriate for different tissue types and areas, as well as different patients. Depending on the size, and location of the recipient site, one may be indicated where the other is not. Consult your periodontist and they can advise you which is better for a particular situation! ...Read moreSee 5 more doctor answers
