Online Article: Root Coverage Procedures in Noncarious Cervical Lesions With and Without Restoration: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
Rovai, Emanuel S. / Ambrosio, Lucas M. B. / Morillo, Carlos M. R. / Villar, Cristina C. / Holzhausen, Marinella / Santamaria, Mauro P. / Pannuti, Cláudio M.
The aim of this systematic review was to assess in patients with gingival recessions and noncarious cervical lesions (NCCLs) whether restoration of NCCLs may influence the percentage of root coverage following surgical root coverage procedures compared to surgical root coverage procedures without subsequent restoration. Four studies (randomized controlled trials) assessing the effects of NCCL restoration in combination with surgical root coverage procedures were included. Meta-analyses showed no significant differences in overall root coverage, CAL gain, and KTW change between test and control groups. In teeth with NCCLs and gingival recessions, restoration of NCCLs does not affect the clinical outcomes of surgical root coverage.
