Treatment of Gingival Recessions Associated with Noncarious Cervical Lesions Using Natural Inlays Before Coronally Advanced Flap Application: A Case Series
Serhat Köseoğlu, DDS, PhD/Levent Savran, MSc/Bilal Yaşa, DDS, PhD

In this issue, Drs Serhat Köseoğlu, Levent Savran, and Bilal Yas present “Treatment of Gingival Recessions Associated with Noncarious Cervical Lesions Using Natural Inlays Before Coronally Advanced Flap Application: A Case Series.” The authors selected computer-aided design/computer-assisted manufactured (CAD/CAM) restorations made from the patient’s natural tooth. By using both digitally precise CAD/CAM procedures and natural inlay (NI) material for restoration of defects before the coronally advanced flap (CAF) surgery, attachment of soft tissues on the root surface can be achieved successfully. Seven nonsmoking patients with noncarious cervical lesions (NCCL) associated with gingival recessions in the maxillary esthetic zone were treated with an NI restoration before CAF surgery. All of the included patients needed at least one tooth removed, and extracted teeth were used for NI restoration for the CAD/CAM milling procedure. After application of the restorative material onto NCCL defects, CAF surgery was performed for root coverage. Successfully restored NCCL defects were covered with CAF, and 91.67% mean root coverage was achieved with a 1.98-mm attachment gain. This innovative procedure focuses our attention to the possibilities combining digital dental technologies with our current state-of-the-art procedures.
