Two week post op appointment. Oral Bond™ will absorb moisture and swell over time. When using Chlorhexidine as a rinse, it will stain Oral Bond™ brown. At two weeks, Oral Bond™ is still attached to the gingiva, teeth, and membrane. If the membrane is mobile at this time, an additional application of Oral Bond™ will secure it until the 1-month removal appointment.
A significant positive finding with this technique is the hyperplasia of the gingiva. The hyperplasia is used to facilitate an improved esthetic result. The hyperplasia is produced by the presence of the membrane in the absence of sutures that compress the tissue in an unnatural manner.
