CE 1: Treatment of Deficient Attached Gingiva and Recession: A Primer
Kirk Pasquinelli, DDS
In this article, the author reviews and differentiates the therapies used to treat gingival recession and areas of deficient attached gingiva, identifying treatment goals with the intention of aiding the practitioners in determining the optimal approach for each of their patients. The specific areas of treatment detailed in the article are autogenous tissue grafting and acellular dermal matrix. With these treatments, the gingival tissues surrounding the teeth are strengthened to resist further recession; therefore, root surfaces are less likely to become increasingly exposed over time.
