Histology of a Human Biopsy Section Following the Placement of a Subepithelial Connective Tissue Graft

John F. Bruno, DDS, MS/Gerald M. Bowers, DDS, MS


PMID: 11203564
DOI: 10.11607/prd.00.0360

This case report histologically examines the type of attachment that can occur after root coverage of a long-standing facial recession defect on a maxillary premolar with a subepithelial connective tissue graft. Histologic findings suggest that various types of tissue attachment, including periodontal regeneration, may occur over a recession defect after placement of a subepithelial connective tissue graft. In the present case, it was noteworthy that after 1 year the greatest area of exposed root surface was covered by a connective tissue attachment (adhesion), which had remained intact during orthodontic movement and distal drifting of the tooth.
