Disease relevance of Gingival Recession


High impact information on Gingival Recession


Chemical compound and disease context of Gingival Recession

  • A begin/end analysis of the coronal level of clinical periodontal attachment and the extent of gingival recession showed no clinically significant changes [8].
  • METHODS: Thirty-six patients participated, each providing one gingival recession; 19 received citric acid demineralization, while 17 did not [9].
  • This paper describes a surgical technique to achieve root coverage in deep, wide gingival recessions using a root isolation procedure with ePTFE membrane, combined with tetracycline conditioning of the root surface and fibrin-fibronectin sealing system application [10].
  • BACKGROUND: The objective of this study was to evaluate the feasibility of a new polylactic acid bioabsorbable barrier in the treatment of gingival recession [11].
  • Cocaine-associated rapid gingival recession and dental erosion. A case report [12].

Anatomical context of Gingival Recession


Gene context of Gingival Recession

  • Treatment of localized gingival recessions. Part IV. Results after three years [16].
  • A young lady suffering from active SLE accompanied by severe periodontal loss, manifested by gingival recession of all her teeth, was referred to our clinic for treatment [17].
  • Preliminary results show that Emdogain, in combination with CAF or CAF+CTG for the treatment of Miller Class I or II gingival recessions, displays good clinical results, with percentage of root coverage comparable or superior to other techniques [18].
  • Pre- and post-therapy clinical parameters (probing depth [PD]; clinical attachment level [CAL]; gingival recession [GR]) and intrasurgical parameters (depth of intraosseous component [IOC]; level of the alveolar crest [ACL]) were compared between test and control groups 1 year after treatment [19].
