One of the most frequent dental problems in adulthood is gingival recession. This condition, commonly described by patients as “retreating gums” or “exposed dental collar” is clinically characterized by the retraction of the gums towards the apical part (root) of the tooth.
The consequences of gum recessions may involve, depending on the severity of the condition:
Good reasons to treat gum recessions are:
Periodontal plastic surgery, by determining the covering of the root, restores the harmony between the gums and the structure of the teeth.
The most applied periodontal surgical techniques for root coverage are the coronally displaced flap and the tunnel technique. Both methods are associated with a free connective tissue graft from the palate.
These techniques are minimally invasive and practically painless in most cases. For over forty years, Calesini has been using a multidisciplinary approach dedicated to resolving oral diseases that allows it to meet the needs of patients with very high expectations fully.
