For example, Miller reported (100)% correlation between heavy smoking and failure to achieve complete root coverage
using free gingival grafts.
Then they explain diagnosis and treatment from such perspectives as morphological characteristics of NCCLs, clinical analysis and diagnosis of cervical dentin hypersensitivity and NCCLs, and surgical protocols: periodontal therapy and root coverage
An initial gingival thickness was found to be the most significant factor that influences the prognosis of a complete root coverage
Objective: To evaluate whether microsurgery gains better result in root coverage
compared to conventional surgical techniques.
The pedicle graft was introduced in 1956 by Grupe and warren3 for root coverage
as a laterally repositioned full thickness flap.
The shorter bristles give really good root coverage
, the long ones on the arch are good for enlongating the outer corner.
Periodontal Soft Tissue Root Coverage
Procedures: Managing gingival recession based on current evidence with a primary outcome goal of complete root coverage
using free soft tissue autografts following acid application.
and Papilla Reconstruction in Class IV Recession: A Case Report.
The connective tissue and partial thickness double pedicle graft: a predictable method of obtaining root coverage
By the end of the six-month prospective study, the mean increase in root coverage
was 87 percent for the patients treated.
Among the positive properties of collagen when used for GTR-based root coverage
procedures is its haemostatic function, achieved though its ability to aggregate platelets.
