Comparison of Two Techniques in Gingival Recession Treatment. One-year Clinical Follow-up Study

2019-10-04 08:31:36 | BioPortfolio


42 patients were treated either with E-CTG (N=20) or SCAF (N=22). The recordings included clinician-based (recession depth, recession width, probing depth, clinical attachment level, keratinized tissue width, tissue thickness, clinical attachment gain (CAG), root coverage (RC), keratinized tissue change (KTC)) and patient-based (wound healing index (WHI), dentine hypersensitivity (DH), tissue appearance, patient expectations and aesthetics) parameters that were taken at baseline, T1 (sixth week), T2 (sixth month) and T3 (first year).

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...

CAF With or Without CTG for the Treatment of Single Maxillary Gingival Recession With NCCL

This studies evaluate the efficacy of the coronally advanced flap (CAF) with or without connective tissue graft (CTG) for the treatment of single maxillary recession associated to non cari...

Tunneling Technique in Treatment of Miller`s Class III Gingival Recession

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...

Single Stage Root Coverage for Gingival Recession With or Without Free Gingival Graft

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...

Gingival recession management: a clinical manual.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.
