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).

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...
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...
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...
This longitudinal clinical study aimed to determine the amount of creeping attachment and its relation to baseline recession depth after placement of free gingival grafts (FGG) apical to class I, II, ...
This study aimed to compare two different soft tissue replacement grafts in their ability to treat gingival recession defects and successfully integrate with the surrounding tissues.
A 9-year-old female was referred by her general dentist for an evaluation of an impacted maxillary left central incisor. Her maxillary left primary incisors showed crossbites and her right central inc...
The ultimate goal of any periodontal plastic surgery aimed to treat gingival recession is predictable recession coverage and esthetic outcome. Due to the post-operative morbidity and discomfort relate...
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.

Complementary and Alternative Medicine
Alternative medicine are whole medical systems that did not fit with conventional medicine as they have completely different philosophies and ideas on the causes of disease, methods of diagnosis and approaches to treatment. Although often overlapping, co...
