11/15. Current trends in gingival recession coverage--part I: the tunnel connective tissue graft.

    The recession of the gingiva is increasingly becoming a more prominent condition in the oral health of many patients and should be treated at its earliest detection. The multifactorial etiology, decision modality, and current trends followed in the treatment of gingival recession are discussed in this presentation. The correction of Class I and II gingival recessions are presented as a means of minimizing surgical trauma and achieving predictable aesthetic results. Part II of this discussion will present alternative techniques in treating gingival recession.

12/15. Adjacent gingival recession treated with expanded polytetrafluoroethylene membranes: a report of 2 cases.

    We report two cases illustrating treatment for adjacent facial gingival recession using guided tissue regeneration (GTR) with expanded polytetrafluoroethylene membranes. The clinical results showed that GTR obtained soft tissue coverage of the root surfaces and was effective in reducing hypersensitivity and improving the esthetics. In both cases, satisfying clinical results have been maintained for 6 to 12 months after re-entry procedure.

13/15. Alternative method of conservative esthetic treatment for gingival recession.

    The health and appearance of gingival tissue play an essential role in esthetics. The esthetic function of the tissue is enhanced when it frames the restoration. With gingival recession, the effect of natural gingiva is created with pink composites or ceramics on the cervical part of the crown, as described in this clinical report. This goal depends on the absence of adverse effects on the color, shape, and health of the surrounding tissue. The new composites are more color stable and wear resistant, and the latest generation of dental bonding agents allows the bonding of composites to dentin, various metals, and porcelain. The application of soft-tissue colored composite on dentin cementum, enamel, or porcelain is a good solution for correcting gingival recessions.

14/15. Treatment of localized gingival recessions using a bioresorbable membrane: a case report.

    A patient with a localized gingival recession suffering from esthetic and hypersensitivity problems was selected for treatment with the guided tissue regeneration procedure. The use of a bioresorbable membrane (Guidor) made reentry surgery for membrane removal unnecessary. A complete root coverage was obtained, and 6 mm of clinical attachment gain was recorded after 6 months. The guided tissue regeneration procedure may represent an effective alternative to traditional mucogingival therapy for the treatment of recessions and permit the management of severe bone destruction with minimal soft tissue retraction. Furthermore, the guided tissue regeneration technique is likely to result in a greater amount of new connective attachment formation, although clinical relevance must still be confirmed by long-term trials.

15/15. wine tasting and dental erosion. Case report.

    A case of widespread dental erosion is reported in an individual who had worked in the wine industry for ten years. This occupation involved daily tasting of at least 20 wines, but often more. The erosion manifested as dental sensitivity with there being cervical erosion, occlusal pitting, and loss of enamel around restorations. The effect of immersing unerupted human teeth in white wine (pH 3.3) was examined with the scanning electron microscope, where marked surface changes had occurred after 24 hours of exposure.
