The Influence of Cementoenamel Restorations in the Treatment of Multiple Gingival Recession Defects Associated with Noncarious Cervical Lesions: A Prospective Study
de Sanctis, Massimo / Di Domenico, Giovanna Laura / Bandel, Alessandra / Pedercini, Chantal / Guglielmi, Davide
The aim of this present prospective study was to evaluate the outcomes of the multiple coronally advanced flap (MCAF) with a site-specific application of connective tissue graft (CTG) for the treatment of multiple gingival recession defects with or without the presence of noncarious cervical lesions (NCCLs). Analysis of periodontal conditions was performed in order to determine if the cementoenamel junction (CEJ) restorations could affect adequate plaque control as well as maintenance over time. A total of 93 gingival recessions were treated, 61% of which presented a NCCL restored with composite resin positioned 1 mm apical to the position of the anatomical CEJ. The surgical treatment involved MCAF+CTG for 54 sites and MCAF alone for 39 sites. At 12 months, complete root coverage (CRC) and periodontal parameters of restored and nonrestored teeth were assessed, and the differences between the two groups were not significant. It can be concluded that the proposed treatment modality does not produce a negative effect on periodontal condition and amount of CRC, thus resulting in a satisfactory esthetic result.
