Abstract:   (1520 Views)

Gingival recession is a frequent issue encountered by both the clinician and the patient. This study was aimed to assess the predictability of the free gingival graft as a single step procedure in terms of root coverage and aesthetics in Miller Class I and II mandibular gingival recession. 
Ten patients (4 males, 6 females) aged 25-30 years with a total of 12 mandibular sites having Miller class I and II recession were selected. All recession sites were treated with single step free gingival graft procedure. Clinical parameters like recession depth, recession width, width of attached gingiva, probing depth and clinical attachment level were recorded at baseline, 6 and 9 months. Visual analog score at 1, 6 and 9 months postoperatively was provided. 
There was a reduction in mean recession depth from 3.66±1.20 to 0.91±0.99 mm suggesting coverage of 82% over a period of 9 months. There was statistically significant gain in clinical attachment level and width of attached gingiva. Aesthetically, it was acceptable by patients as measured by visual analog scores. 
Free gingival graft as a single step procedure is acceptable in terms of root coverage and aesthetics.
