Minimally Invasive Surgical Approach for the Treatment of Miller’s Class I Recession Defects- A Report of 2 Cases
Houseno.77,First floor,Raja Garden, New delhi, Delhi, India.
Gingival recession is defined as the apical displacement of the gingival margin leading to exposure of the root surface. Occurrence of the gingival recessions in the anterior teeth is a major concern for the patients as it leads to compromised esthetics and achieving the esthetic and functional requirements of the patients remains a major therapeutic challenge for the treating dental surgeon. Incorporating the principles of Minimally Invasive Surgical Technique (MIST), surgical trauma is minimized, thus causing less cell damage, eventually resulting in less inflammation and less discomfort. Minimally invasive surgical technique aims to achieve esthetically superior outcomes that are made possible due to improved visual acuity. Therefore, the intent of this case report was to emphasize the impact of implementing the minimally invasive surgical procedure in the management of marginal gingival recessions using the conventional coronally advanced flap (CAF) and the Tarnow’s technique, with the use of microsurgical instruments and magnifying surgical loupes.
