Collagen matrices (CMs) could be used instead of connective tissue grafts (CTGs) for treatment of gingival recession (GR). The authors aimed to compare clinical outcomes after treatment of isolated GR affecting both maxillary canines of 10 patients (n = 10) with CM (OsteoBiol Derma) or CTG in conjunction with coronally advanced flap. After 12 months, CM and CTG showed complete correction in 7/10 and 10/10 of sites, respectfully, and percentage of root coverage was 85% ± 24% and 100%, respectively. For treatment of isolated GR, CM is a viable alternative to CTG.

CAF in combination with a connective tissue graft (CTG) is considered the technique of choice for treating gingival recessions (GRs). Among the many recognized factors that can affect the outcomes, th...
We have compiled, in this Periodontology 2000 review, all Latin American literature on experimental and clinical studies of periodontal plastic procedures. The body of literature on this subject has l...
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the application of the supraclavicular artery island flap (SCAIF) for the reconstruction of laryngopharyngectomy defects in comparison with reconstructions wi...
The aim of this prospective in vivo study was to evaluate the accuracy of the marginal and internal fit of crowns based on conventional impression (CI) or intraoral scan (IOS) in a randomised, split-m...
To investigate, using a split-mouth randomized clinical design, the effect of micro-osteoperforation (MOP) on mini-implant supported canine retraction using fixed appliances.
The present randomized, controlled, parallel-grouped trial included twenty patients (aged 20 to 54 years) suffering from Miller's class I or II gingival recession. Patients were randomly a...
Clinical Evaluation of the Amount of Root Coverage Following The Use of VISTA Technique Versus Coronally Advanced Flap in Combination With Subepithelial Connective Tissue Graft for Management of Multiple Gingival Recessions
Patients with multiple recession defects will be randomly oriented into to groups. The test group will recieve a relatively new technique, the VISTA technique, combined with connective tis...
The aim of this study was to compare clinical, esthetic and patient-centered outcomes of coronally advanced tunnel (TUN) and coronally advanced flap (CAF) both associated with connective t...
Management of Miller class I & II gingival recession using coronally advanced flap combined with conventional de-epithelialized free gingival graft versus coronally advanced flap combined ...
The purpose of this study is to assess the influence of two different flap designs (envelope Coronally Advanced Flap (eCAF) and Modified Tunnel Technique (MTT)) with the addition of a conn...
Endonucleases that remove 5' DNA sequences from a DNA structure called a DNA flap. The DNA flap structure occurs in double-stranded DNA containing a single-stranded break where the 5' portion of the downstream strand is too long and overlaps the 3' end of the upstream strand. Flap endonucleases cleave the downstream strand of the overlap flap structure precisely after the first base-paired nucleotide, creating a ligatable nick.
A surgical procedure to correct MYOPIA by CORNEAL STROMA subtraction. It involves the use of a microkeratome to make a lamellar dissection of the CORNEA creating a flap with intact CORNEAL EPITHELIUM. After the flap is lifted, the underlying midstroma is reshaped with an EXCIMER LASER and the flap is returned to its original position.
Comparison of various psychological, sociological, or cultural factors in order to assess the similarities or diversities occurring in two or more different cultures or societies.
A surgical technique to correct REFRACTIVE ERRORS of the EYE, such as MYOPIA and ASTIGMATISM. In this method, a flap of CORNEAL EPITHELIUM is created by exposure of the area to dilute alcohol. The flap is lifted and then replaced after laser ablation of the subepithelial CORNEA.
Complete severing of the CORPUS CALLOSUM. In humans it is usually performed to treat medically intractable, multifocal EPILEPSY. EXPERIMENTAL ANIMAL MODELS of split brain preparations are used in research.
