Brief Summary:
Subepithelial connective tissue grafts (CTG) are considered the gold standard procedure with proven clinical success when it comes to gingival augmentation aims to to improve periodontal health, which can enhance the long-term prognosis of teeth by obtaining soft tissue coverage of exposed root surfaces and/or augmentation the dimensions of gingival tissue. The procedure require harvesting tissue from a the palate, which increases the complexity of the procedure and patient discomfort. Complications after harvesting a graft would be pain, inflammation, bleeding, flap necrosis and infection in the donor site.

Study Type : Interventional  (Clinical Trial)
Estimated Enrollment : 20 participants
Allocation: Randomized
Intervention Model: Parallel Assignment
Masking: Double (Investigator, Outcomes Assessor)
Primary Purpose: Supportive Care
Official Title: Evaluation of Post Operative Pain, Early Wound Healing, and the Time of Application of Cyanoacrylates Tissue Adhesives Versus Silk Sutures at the Palatal Donor Area of Subepithelial Connective Tissue Grafts (CTG) A Randomized Clinical Trial: Comparative Study
Actual Study Start Date : February 1, 2021
Estimated Primary Completion Date : December 1, 2021
Estimated Study Completion Date : December 1, 2021

Arm Intervention/treatment
Experimental: Cayanoacrylate tissue adhesives
thin layers of high viscosity blend of n-butyl and 2-octyl cayanoacrylate tissue adhesive will be applied and rinsed with saline at least three times with interval of at least 30 seconds
Procedure: Cayanoacrylate tissue adhesives
Cyanoacrylates are a family of strong fast-acting adhesives with industrial, medical, and household uses. They are various esters of cyanoacrylic acid. The acryl groups in the resin rapidly polymerize in the presence of water to form long, strong chains

Active Comparator: Silk suture material
interrupted knots
Procedure: Silk suture
Non Absorbalble suture materiel used to fixed the edges of the incision in place until healing

Primary Outcome Measures :
  1. Early Wound Healing [ Time Frame: 1 week ]
    Measured By Modified Early Wound Healing Index
