Amniotic Membrane - A Novel Method for Periodontal Regeneration-A Review

K. V. Swathi [6]

Abstract: The protective amniotic sac that is covering the foetus plays a very pivotal role in many aspects. The material which was once thought to be discarded during the delivery of the baby has now found immense applications for regeneration and revitalization of devitalized tissues. The amniotic membrane can be processed and the dehydrated amnion allograft can be used for ocular transplants, treatment of gingival recession and as a source of stem cells in tissue engineering. Here in the article, the role of amniotic membrane in the treatment of gingival recession, the important structural and functional properties of amniotic membrane and other properties of amniotic membrane are discussed.

Keywords: Amniotic Membrane, Gingival recession, GTR Membrane
