Wound Healing

STUDY
PLAY
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
