Performing perioplastic procedures the prognosis

This preview shows page 1 - 3 out of 5 pages.

performing perio‑plastic procedures, the prognosis seemed to improve. [2] The possible consequences of gingival recession are compromised esthetics, dentinal hypersensitivity, cervical abrasions, plaque retention, and high incidence of root caries. Usually, patients seek corrective treatment for root hypersensitivity and esthetic problems. A root coverage (RC) that is predictable can be seen by several perio‑plastic procedures, namely, the free gingival graft technique, pedicle flaps, coronally advanced flap (CAF) technique, and subepithelial connective tissue technique. However, in spite of achieving predictable RC by these procedures, there was formation of a long junctional epithelium during healing.

Kapare, et al .: Resorbable membrane in recession coverage 2 Journal of Indian Society of Periodontology - Volume XX, Issue XX, Month 2017 limitations associated with these procedures are discomfort to the patient, it takes a long duration of time, another surgical site, inadequate supply of donor tissue, and bleeding after surgery. [3] Guided tissue regeneration (GTR) that is one of the commonly sought treatment modalities aims at guiding the proliferation of the epithelial cells and at the same time makes sure that they do not proliferate into the areas that is desirous of achieving periodontal regeneration. [4] As per Leknes et al ., connective tissue repair to the exposed root surface is not achieved by GTR as RC procedure provides only periodontal regeneration. [5] Collagen is semipermeable, allowing nutrient passage and gas exchange. Collagen tissue due to its property of semipermeabilty enables the passage of nutrients and exchange of gases and aids in the augmentation of the entire tissue volume as it gets absorbed naturally and thereby getting replaced by host tissue. [6] The present study aimed at evaluating the clinical outcome of RC in the treatment of Miller’s Class I and II recession defects in maxillary anteriors and premolars CAF with and without resorbable collagen membrane (Novabone RCM TM ).

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
