DENTISTRY BOOK: Mucogingival Esthetic Surgery - Giovanni Zucchelli - Quintessence Publishing Co. 2019


Mucogingival esthetic surgery is dedicated to the treatment of mucogingival esthetic alterations. These may be caused by gingival recession, often in association with abrasion and/or root caries or, conversely, altered passive eruption.


The aims of Mucogingival Esthetic Surgery may also be to augment gingival width and height around prostheses or implants and to fill out edentulous ridges.

Techniques for edentulous ridge augmentation are addressed in the second volume. 

This volume describes and illustrates mucogingival surgical techniques as applied to native teeth or implants, with the chief aim of satisfying the patient's esthetic requirements.



Prof. Giovanni Zucchelli This beautifully illustrated book explains the art and science of esthetic surgical techniques on the mucogingiva around natural teeth and implants. 

The author shows how to diagnose and treat mucogingival defects, with detailed explanation of the diagnosis of and the surgical options for covering varying degrees of gingival recession. 

The text features protocols for the treatment and preparation of root caries and noncarious lesions as well as the surgical procedures to cover exposed root surfaces and increase the volume of the affected gingiva. 

Throughout, the author places special emphasis on minimizing patient recovery time and postoperative discomfort while achieving the patient's esthetic goals to the best extent possible. 

This comprehensive volume is a must-read for those seeking to learn or refine Mucogingival surgery techniques.
