Cosmetic periodontal surgery (Part 4B)
Fig. 1: Note the obvious singular defect of recession at the gingival area of #11.
Fig. 2: Final 10-year result. Using the collagen barrier with the coronal repositioned flap technique permits the regeneration of the attached gingiva, with its pinkish white color blending naturally with the healthy tissue.
Fig. 3: Pretreatment view of #11 and#12. Note the large recessed gingival area exposing their respective roots.
Fig. 4: Surgical mucogingival flap exposing recession areas of #11 and #12.
Fig. 5: Placement of connective-tissue barrier on only #11.
Fig. 6: Sutured coronal repositioned flap to desired level covering all exposed recession.
Fig. 7: Final result at 10-plus years. Complete recession coverage on #11. But note that root recession exposure on #12 returns as it was before surgery.
