stages of wound healing

clot formation , granulation tissue development, epithelialization, collagen formation, regeneration and maturation

clot formation

acts as a bandage to protect the wound and allow it to heal

granulation tissue development

capallaries and endothelial undifferentiated mesenchymal cells surround the fibrous tissue

epithelialization

long JE forms to get rid of pocket

collagen formation

completed by the fibroblast

regeneration

the ultimate goal, long JE and gingiva fiber bundlesq

maturation

state of complete healing

healing of soft tissue wounds in periodontal procedures

gingivectomy, simple incision, reattachment, new attachment, root detoxification, flaps/ free gingival grafts

gingivectomy

excision of gingiva for the coronal growth of soft tissue due to drugs, ortho appliances, familial hereditary fibrous, allows for better assess for self care and to improve esthetics

gingivectomy - wound healing

connective tissue produces granulation tissue, healed wound= base layer of CT and fibroblast in granulation tissue will produce collagen

connective tissue produces granulation tissue

increase mitotic activity in fibroblast, endothelial cells, capillaries & mesenchymal cells that will be covered by neutrophils

healed wound

base layer of CT covered by granulation tissue, layer of neutrophils and a clot that serves as a bandage

Simple incision

cut edges are closely approximate with small areas left between, where clot can develope
