Coronally Advanced Flap (CAF) surgery supported by hyaDENT BG for treatment of a gingival recession.

(Case by Prof A. Pilloni, Rome, Italy)

PRE-OPERATIVE

A recession defect of Miller Class II was observed in the lower right canine despite the patient’s good dental hygiene and regular dental treatments.

SURGERY

It was decided to treat the recession surgically. After flap preparation, the root surface was carefully cleaned.

HYADENT BG was applied on the root surface and on the incision areas of the soft tissue. This supports periodontal regeneration and assures fast wound healing (large image). HYADENT BG mixes well with the blood, which is essential for the clinical efficacy of hyaluronic acid (small image).

The wound was closed with a Coronally Advanced Flap (CAF).

1 YEAR POST-OPERATIVE

The recession is still well covered with a healthy soft tissue.
