Healing of Gingival Recession Following Orthodontic Treatment: A 30-Year Case Report

Giovan Paolo Pini-Prato, MD, DMD/Giuseppe Cozzani, MD, DMD/Cristina Magnani, DDS/Tiziano Baccetti, DDS, PhD

This case report describes the healing of gingival recessions on mandibular incisors resulting from orthodontic treatment of a deep bite malocclusion at a 30-year follow-up observation. The marked improvement in the severe recessions was a consequence of the elimination of the direct trauma, orthodontic intrusion of the affected teeth, and subsequent creeping attachment over time. No periodontal treatment was performed before or after orthodontic treatment. (Int J Periodontics Restorative Dent 2012;32:2327.)
