Abstract

Materials and methods

Fifteen systemically healthy patients with multiple gingival recessions underwent the procedure the probing depth, percentage of root coverage width of keratinized gingiva, width of attached gingiva were recorded at baseline 3 and 12 months.

Results

All parameters significantly improved from baseline to 12 months. The mean probing depth 1 mm ± 0 mm at baseline which was increased to 1.175 ± 0.245 mm at the end of 3 months and remained same at 12 months. The mean gingival recession was 2.35 ± 0.516 mm at baseline which was improved to 0.425 ± 0.245 mm at the end of 3 months and remained same at 12 months. The mean width of keratinized gingiva was 1.157 ± 0.245 mm at baseline which was improved to 3.15 ± 0.489 mm at the end of 3 months and remained same at 12 months. The mean width of attached gingiva 0.175 ± 0.245 mm at baseline which was improved to 1.975 ± 0.415 mm at the end of 3 months and remained same at 12 months.

Conclusion

The mucogingival surgery resulted in achieving high degree of success and predictability as well as an excellent esthetic outcome.

Clinical significance

Free rotated papilla autograft is a predictabe treatment modality for multiple shallow gingival recessions.
