Treatment of Localized Gingival Recessions Using a Bioresorbable Membrane: A Case Report

Vanden Bogaerde/Esposito

PMID: 9497741
DOI: 10.11607/prd.00.0238

A patient with a localized gingival recession suffering from e sthetic and hypersensitivity problems was selected for treatment with the guided tissue regeneration procedure. The use of a bioresorbable membrane (Guidor) made reentry surgery for membrane removal unnecessary. A complete root coverage was obtained, and 6 mm of clinical attachment gain was recorded after 6 months. The guided tissue regeneration procedure may reporesent an effective alternative to traditional mucogingival therapy for the treatment of recessions and permit the management of severe bone destruction with minimal soft tissue retraction. Furthermore, the guided tissue regeneration technique is likely to result in a greater amount of new connective attachment formation, although clinical relevance m ust still be confirmed by long-term trials.
