We were therefore able to pool effect measures for only four outcomes (oral white lesions, periodontal pocketing, gingival recession
and gum bleeding).
L Trambelli, G Schincaglia, C Scapali, G Calura, Healing response of human buccal gingival recessions
treated with expanded pabytetra fluoro ethylene membrane: A retrospective report.
The main agents causing gingival recession
that have been described in the literature are dental plaque, (1) destructive periodontal disease, (2,3) mechanical trauma, (4,5) areas with absence or a narrow zone (width) of attached gingiva, (6) muscular inserts near the gingival margin, (7) reduced thickness of the alveolar bone in the buccolingual side, (8,9) root prominence, (10) irregular tooth alignment in the dental arch, (11) margins of gingival restorations (12,13) and viruses.
Among the 70 teeth identified as hypersensitive, 35 had 0 mm gingival recession
and 35 had more than 1 mm gingival recession
; 47 were maxillary and 23 mandibular.
Surgical corrections of gingival recession
defects are aimed mainly at complete restoration of anatomy of the mucogingival complex and regeneration of the attachment apparatus of tooth, including cementum with inserting connective tissue fibers, and alveolar bone on previously exposed root surfaces (1,2).
Despite the great extent of damage to the teeth from the use of methamphetamine drugs, the main concern expressed about the cosmetic appearance of his mouth centered on the gingival recession
created from periodontal disease and prior use of smokeless tobacco in addition to the supragingival calculus.
is the loss of this protective seal, making teeth susceptible to bacteria that can lead to decay and potential tooth loss.
Results were presented at the American Academy of Periodontology Annual Meeting demonstrating continued long-term efficacy up to 24 months after treatment with GEM 21S[R], Growth-factor Enhanced Matrix for the treatment of bony defects and gingival recession
resulting from periodontal disease.
Information gathered during the examination included a gingival index, a plaque score, periodontal probing depths, gingival recession
and bleeding on probing.
A research group from the Ohio State University in Columbus recruited, from the community, 29 young adults with lip piercing (mean age, 21 years, 8 months; 15 females) and 29 without (mean age, 22 years, 3 months; 15 females) and examined them for gingival recession
on the buccal aspect of the mandibular central incisors.
The current approval provides additional, large scale manufacturing capacity to ensure the adequate supply of rhPDGF-BB available for use in GEM 21S, which is marketed for the treatment of periodontal bone defects and gingival recession
, and GEM OS1, which is currently being evaluated in three clinical trials for orthopedic indications.
a biopharmaceutical company specializing in the development and commercialization of autologous (a patient's own) cellular therapy for hard and soft tissue regeneration ("the Isolagen Process"), today announced additional findings from further analysis of results from a 6-month double- blind clinical study in which their proprietary treatment successfully reversed gingival recession
and improved deep-periodontal pocketing.
