PDF: Periodontal Plastic Surgery: A clinical case report - Bueno Rossy, Luis Alexandro


The therapeutic approach to gingival recession requires a treatment plan involving basic therapy, which will focus on its etiologies and the most suitable periodontal plastic surgery therapy in each specific case.


Surgical procedures with connective-tissue grafts, taken mainly from the palate, are the gold standard in gingival recession treatment.


The aim of this paper is to present the step-by-step postorthodontic therapy treatment of a case of gingival recession and its long-term evaluation. 

According to the American Academy of Periodontology, gingival recession is defined as the exposure of the tooth root caused by the migration of the gingiva to a point apical to the cementoenamel junction. 

This frequently compromises dental and gingival aesthetics, and causes dental hypersensitivity. It can appear in its localized or generalized form.


The elimination of causal factors and the detailed explanation provided to the patient are as important as the periodontal plastic surgery technique to implement.
