An autogenous gingival graft technique for root coverage
Michaelides / Wilson
This paper discusses a technique for root coverage using autogenous free gingival grafts. Twenty-two patients who had gingival recession on facial tooth surfaces were studied. The patients underwent surgical treatment, and pretreatment and posttreatment average probing depths for the distal, facial, and mesial tooth surfaces were compared. There was a general decrease in recession for all surfaces. Recession levels tended to remain stable for the duration of the study. There was a slight increase in recession on midfacial surfaces at 4 years that was not statistically significant.
