Figure 2: (a) Mandibular site demonstrating inadequate keratinized mucosa, planned for implant restoration; (b) Implant placement followed by free gingival graft harvest from palate. FGG contoured to fit around implants and sutured in place using 5/0 vicryl sutures ;(c) Post‑op healing at 2 months, demonstrating good band of keratinized tissue around both implants; (d) Also note about 20% graft shrinkage at the distal implant, highlighting the need to over‑augment
