Limited Ortho treatment with gum recession - part 1

115 Rating(s).


Posted on By Delia Tuttle In Orthodontics

6 months smile cosmetic braces ( and 5 days) performed on a young female concerned about lower crowding and gum recession. After orthodontic treatment I performed frenectomy before root coverage procedure. We need couple of months for tissue to settle before we are going to proceed with root coverage. Stay tuned for my Gum Drop Technique surgery on root coverage with A- Prf and I- Prf. Coming up as part 2. Thank you Dental XP

Are you going to do a video presentation for Dental XP?
I also started to use A - Prf for recession covering, preliminary results are promising!
Thank you for sharing and keep doing!

Many people have crowded or crooked teeth. Orthodontic treatment will straighten the teeth or move them into a better position. This can improve their appearance and the way the teeth bite together, while also making them easier to clean. Some people have upper front teeth that stick out and look unsightly. These 'prominent' teeth are more likely to be damaged, but orthodontic treatment can move them back into line. Or the way the upper and lower jaws meet can cause teeth to look unsightly and lead to an incorrect bite. Orthodontic treatment may be able to correct both of these problems. When the teeth don't meet correctly, this can put strain on the muscles of the jaw, causing jaw and joint problems and sometimes headaches. Orthodontic treatment can help you to bite more evenly and reduce the strain.

Delia, if there is no keratinized gingiva, does Gum Drop technique work?
Can`t wait until your presentation:)

Snejana, Gum Drop works with minimum 2 mm keratinized tissue. But I did it with 1 mm as well. Hugs
