Hansmeier U, Eickholz P - Int J Dent (2010)

Bottom Line: The aim of this prospective longitudinal clinical pilot study was the evaluation of the effect on the Oral Health Impact Profile (OHIP) and patient-centered results of the envelope technique for Connective Tissue Graft (CTG).Methods.Over all, patients were reasonably satisfied with the surgical technique and its results.

ABSTRACT
Purpose. The aim of this prospective longitudinal clinical pilot study was the evaluation of the effect on the Oral Health Impact Profile (OHIP) and patient-centered results of the envelope technique for Connective Tissue Graft (CTG). Methods. Sixteen patients (11 females) 24 to 71 years of age (42.6 +/- 11.1) received CTG that had been harvested from the palate and grafted using the envelope technique. Prior to and 3 months after surgery, all patients were examined clinically, completed the OHIP-G49 questionnaire, and were asked to judge the results of surgery. Results. Mean baseline recession depth of 2.5 +/- 0.8 mm was reduced by 1.2 +/- 0.9 mm (P < .001). Root coverage amounted to 48 +/- 39%. In 5 of 16 defects complete root coverage was achieved. Pain at the donor site was more pronounced than at recipient site regarding prevalence (8/6; P = .007), intensity (2.1 +/- 2.3/1.1 +/- 1.9 [visual analogue scale]; P = .016), and duration (1.4 +/- 2.3/0.8 +/- 1.4 days; P = .042). Baseline OHIP (15.7 +/- 12.1) was decreased by 3.6 +/- 8.5 three months after surgery (P = .139). Thirteen patients (81%) would undergo CTG surgery for similar reasons again. Conclusions. Root coverage using CTG according to the envelope technique provided improvement of OHIP as early as 3 months after surgery. Over all, patients were reasonably satisfied with the surgical technique and its results.

Right maxillary canine (patient #19): (a) before, (b) 3 months after connective tissue graft. The denuded root surface was covered completely. Gingiva is a bit too thick and the color is too light.

Mentions: Three months after surgical root coverage these measurements were repeated. Root coverage was assessed as reduction of RD. Immediately prior and 3 months after surgery images of the facial aspect of the test teeth were taken (Figures 1–3).
