Case 55
Gingival recession (root exposure) is caused by periodontal disease but also can be developmental, or caused by improper brushing. It is not only an aesthetic issue but also creates an area that is prone to cavities and sensitivity problems. Treatment consists of periodontal plastic surgery including a gum graft using the patient's own tissue or utilizing Alloderm to cover the exposed root. Some common problems with previous techniques for gum grafts were scar lines, mismatched color (causing a "patchy" appearance), insufficient gum coverage, of a "bulky" appearance. Dr. Farnoosh has developed a technique that has been improved over the years to minimize the formation of the above-mentioned problems so that the graft site cannot be detected. In the "Before" image, a patient with an exposed root is seen. This patient was then treated with Dr. Farnoosh's gum grafting technique. The "After" image was taken 4 weeks after surgery. As you can see, after proper healing, it is impossible to see that surgery has been performed. The gums look healthy and natural.   Surgeon: Dr. Alex Farnoosh
