Twenty patients with gingival recession will be enrolled in this trial. Gingival recession will be treated in one side by applying Mucograft® with coronally advanced flap (CAF) while on t...
Aim of the study was to evaluate the clinical efficacy of placental membrane with coronally advanced flap in covering single and multiple Miller's class I and II gingival recession defects...
Several surgical techniques have been proposed to correct recession defect and attain root coverage. Though, the majority were executed on Miller Class I and II recession defects. Moreover...
Background and Objective: Gingival recession accounts for apical migration of the gingival margin resulting in exposure of the cementoenamel junction (CEJ) and root surface. It is a matter...
The purpose of this study is to compare the clinical outcomes after coronally advanced flap technique (CAF) associated or not to a porcine collagen matrix graft (CM) in the treatment of si...
Prevalence of gingival recession (GR) and associations with dentine hypersensitivity (DH), erosive toothwear (BEWE), gingival bleeding (BOP) and periodontal pocketing (PPD) in young European adults.
Gingival recession is defined as the oral exposure of the root surface due to a displacement of the gingival margin apical to the cemento-enamel junction and it is regularly linked to the deterioratio...
Aim of the present study was to investigate the prevalence of gingival recession and related factors in teeth with low occlusal function (open bite and infraversion) after orthodontic treatment.
The aim of this randomized controlled clinical trial was to evaluate the possible advantages of adjunctive hyaluronic acid (HA) application in the coronally advanced flap (CAF) procedure in single Mi...
Limited information is available on gingival recession or localised aggressive periodontitis among HIV-infected children and adolescents. This study reports on the prevalence of these conditions among...
Exposure of the root surface when the edge of the gum (GINGIVA) moves apically away from the crown of the tooth. This is common with advancing age, vigorous tooth brushing, diseases, or tissue loss of the gingiva, the PERIODONTAL LIGAMENT and the supporting bone (ALVEOLAR PROCESS).
Excessive growth of the gingiva either by an increase in the size of the constituent cells (GINGIVAL HYPERTROPHY) or by an increase in their number (GINGIVAL HYPERPLASIA). (From Jablonski's Dictionary of Dentistry, 1992, p574)
Techniques used to expose dental surface below the gingival margin in order to obtain better dental impression during periodental and peri-implant applications. The retraction of the gingival tissue can be achieved surgically (e.g., laser gingivectomy and rotary curettage) or chemically with a retraction cord.
An abnormal extension of a gingival sulcus not accompanied by the apical migration of the epithelial attachment.
The flowing of blood from the marginal gingival area, particularly the sulcus, seen in such conditions as GINGIVITIS, marginal PERIODONTITIS, injury, and ASCORBIC ACID DEFICIENCY.
