Evaluation of SECTG Vs. Laser-DGG in Management of Gingival Recessions.

2019-10-24 12:49:26 | BioPortfolio


This study evaluates laser de-epithelialized gingival graft to be as effective as subepithelial connective tissue graft in management of multiple gingival recessions using tunneling technique. half pf participants will be treated from gingival recession using tunneling technique with laser de-epithelized gingival graft, while the other half will be treated using tunneling technique with subepithelial connective tissue graft.


Tunneling technique is a minimal invasive method for coronal advancement during gingival recession coverage. The technique provide better blood supply which enhances wound healing and results in successful root coverage and attachment gain. Tunneling technique is suggested to be incorporated with a soft tissue tissue for better recipient site outcome.

In a systemic review and meta-analysis conducted in 2019 there was limited evidence available comparing subepithelial connective tissue graft to the de-epithelialized gingival graft. However the de-epithelialized gingival graft showed superior mean root coverage, keratinized tissue gain and clinical attachment gain over the subepithelial connective tissue graft making it the technique of choice when incorporated with coronal advancement flap in treatment of gingival recession. Laser de-epithelization may enrich the advantages of the conventional de-epithelization method where more uniform predictable epithelization can be obtained.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

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.

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.

A technique utilizing a laser coupled to a catheter which is used in the dilatation of occluded blood vessels. This includes laser thermal angioplasty where the laser energy heats up a metal tip, and direct laser angioplasty where the laser energy directly ablates the occlusion. One form of the latter approach uses an EXCIMER LASER which creates microscopically precise cuts without thermal injury. When laser angioplasty is performed in combination with balloon angioplasty it is called laser-assisted balloon angioplasty (ANGIOPLASTY, BALLOON, LASER-ASSISTED).

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)

The immune responses of a host to a graft. A specific response is GRAFT REJECTION.
