Root Coverage Procedures
Gingival recession is a clinical problem that we see daily. Patients with gingival recession have an increased risk of root caries, for which there are limited restorative options. It can also be aesthetically unattractive if the recession shows when the patient smiles/talks.
Root exposure can cause hypersensitivity which can interfere with normal hygiene procedures, leading to increased plaque accumulation while increasing the risk of further recession. To correct this problem,we re-cover the root surface in a simple surgical procedure.
