Root Coverage and Papilla Reconstruction in Class IV Recession: A Case Report
Azzi, Robert / Etienne, Daniel / Sauvan, Jean-Luc / Miller, Preston D.
While root coverage is predictable for Miller Class I and II recessions, the surgical regeneration or reconstruction of a lost interdental papilla is more difficult to obtain. To date only a few successful case reports have been reported, and there are no studies that report a predictable technique to obtain papilla reconstruction or root coverage on Class IV recessions. This case report, which is part of a preliminary study, outlines a surgical technique to obtain simultaneous root coverage and papilla reconstruction.
