Restoration of the CEJ level and root coverage after gingival augmentation procedure on mandibular teeth: a case presentation
Allegri, Mario Alessio / Corica, Francesco / Cairo, Francesco
The aim of this article is to present a clinical case of a 54-year-old patient where the cementoenamel junction (CEJ) level was restored and a root coverage procedure carried out after gingival augmentation on the mandibular teeth. A very thin buccal keratinized tissue (KT) was detected apical to the recessions. The restorative approach consisted of identifying the lost CEJ, thus differentiating the area of restoration from the area of root coverage of the abraded teeth. Subsequently, a free gingival graft (FGG) was applied. A coronally advanced flap procedure was performed 3 months later. The clinical outcomes obtained through combined restorative/ periodontal treatment were maintained at the 4-year follow-up.
