A patient with a progressive gum recession which had led to compromised esthetics and sensitivity. The teeth had 3-4 mm of gingival recession on the buccal surface with a sufficient zone of
keratinized gingiva. The patients' main priorities were to improve
esthetics and reduce/eliminate root sensitivity. Treatment goals for this case were to obtain complete root coverage, increase soft-tissue thickness, and reduce/eliminate cervical sensitivity. Using Geistlich Fibro-Gide® a 100% root coverage has been obtained
and the patients' chief complaints of esthetics and sensitivity have been addressed.
