Abstract

Traditionally, for a longtime suturing has been the only means of periodontal flap closure. With the advent of fibrin glue, a new chapter has opened in the field of flap closure. Fibrin glue is easy to handle and also tissue friendly. It does not retard wound healing and also causes less trauma to the patient. Suturing will always remain a gold standard for periodontal flap closure. Fibrin glue is proving to be a good alternative to suturing. In this review article, we critically try to review the pros and cons of fibrin glue in periodontal surgery.
