Aesthetic demand has increased tremendously in the recent years and so has the demand for the consequent cosmetic periodontal surgeries. One of the most common aesthetic problems encountered is the gingival recession, especially in the anterior region. Gingival recession is the exposure of ischolar_main surface due to apical migration of gingival margin. Many patients seek treatment because of aesthetic concerns, ischolar_main sensitivity or fear of loss of affected tooth. This case report describes management of gingival recession using connective tissue graft and laterally repositioned flap after ischolar_main surface biomodification.

Abstract


Aesthetic demand has increased tremendously in the recent years and so has the demand for the consequent cosmetic periodontal surgeries. One of the most common aesthetic problems encountered is the gingival recession, especially in the anterior region. Gingival recession is the exposure of ischolar_main surface due to apical migration of gingival margin. Many patients seek treatment because of aesthetic concerns, ischolar_main sensitivity or fear of loss of affected tooth. This case report describes management of gingival recession using connective tissue graft and laterally repositioned flap after ischolar_main surface biomodification.
