Palatal grafting

Clinical studies validate great outcomes, but it hurts the patient.
Introducing Elemental®, a scientifically proven method that
Avoids pain
Doesn't require suturing the donor site

The Elemental Workflow

Watch to learn how it works.
3 steps, 2 minutes
In advance of the surgery, shape the Elemental material on the palate to create a stent.
Immediately after harvesting the graft, place the stent. There's no need to suture the donor site.
Patient wears the stent for 1 week. 

Cases with Elemental®

Prof. Dr. Andy Temmerman
The free gingival graft is harvested. No sutures are placed whatsoever.
The stent is created chairside before the surgery & placed immediately after harvesting the graft.
Without delays, the graft is placed on the recipient site.
Follow-up at one week shows excellent healing and re-epithelialization. Patient experienced no pain.
Dr. Haakon Kuit
The stent is made chairside in advance of the surgery.
The free gingival graft is harvested. No sutures are needed on the donor site.
The stent is placed immediately after harvesting the graft. The blood clot is stabilized.
Without delays, the graft is placed on the recipient site.
Dr. Iñaki Gamborena
The stent was placed on a complicated healing site with underlying conditions.
After 20 days, the stent was removed. Despite underlying complications, the site revealed great healing.

Clinical Study

"Pre-operative, chair-side Zn-containing surgical stents affect morbidity and wound healing after free gingival graft harvesting: a randomized clinical trial."
Clinical Oral Investigations
Published July 19th 2023

Minimizing post-operative pain.

The results show that using Zn-containing palatal stent (Elemental) after free gingival graft surgery significantly reduces pain and patient morbidity during the postoperative period.

The study also revealed that the Zn-containing stent promoted a faster re-epithelialization rate.

Reduced surgical time, no need to suture the donor site.

The patients in the Zn-S group (Elemental) had a considerably shorter overall surgical time and donor site surgical time than the HA-S group.
