A novel approach in root coverage - Coronally repositioned flap with GTR membrane and frenotomy.

Patil VA, Patil ST - J Indian Soc Periodontol (2013)

Bottom Line: Vertical osseous defect along with Millers class I gingival recession was seen after initial therapy.Complete root coverage was achieved over the maxillary central incisor that initially presented with Miller's class I gingival recession along with radiographic bone fill of the osseous defect.This case report shows the possibility of applying GTR-based root coverage procedure using coronally advanced flap combined with frenotomy to treat Millers class I gingival recession.

ABSTRACT
This case report describes a guided tissue regeneration (GTR) based root coverage procedure over maxillary central incisor using coronally advanced flap with simultaneously performed frenotomy. The patient was a 32-year-old female with chief complaint of gingival enlargement in relation to 11. Based on overall findings it was diagnosed as a case of inflammatory gingival enlargement. Vertical osseous defect along with Millers class I gingival recession was seen after initial therapy. GTR-based root coverage procedure using coronally advanced flap with simultaneously performed frenotomy was planned. Complete root coverage was achieved over the maxillary central incisor that initially presented with Miller's class I gingival recession along with radiographic bone fill of the osseous defect. This case report shows the possibility of applying GTR-based root coverage procedure using coronally advanced flap combined with frenotomy to treat Millers class I gingival recession.

Figure 10: Post-op view after 10 days

Mentions: After 10 days of healing, the flap appeared to be stable, erythematous, and well perfused. The frenotomy was determined to be healing within normal limits [Figure 10]. The patient was re-evaluated at 2, 4, and 6 months postoperatively, and no recession was observed on the treated tooth [Figures 11 and 12].
