Tunneling CT Graft to Cover Gingival Clefts

DF2 Uncategorized

Our patient had an older type of gum graft (free gingival graft) placed around her lower incisors many years ago. Unfortunately this did not cover the exposed roots of her teeth, and the persistent clefts in the tissue accumulated a lot of plaque. Using a Connective Tissue Tunneling Graft we were able to cover the roots, eliminate the clefts, and greatly improve her ability to keep her teeth clean. This will prevent root decay and further recession.
