Evaluation of the esthetic concern due to altered passive eruption treatment by periodontal surgical approach: A case series

AUTHOR(S): Dr. Sneha Puri
ABSTRACT:With the increased emphasis on facial esthetics, both patients and dentists are developing a greater awareness of the impact of the gingiva on the beauty of the smile. The aim of the study is to evaluate effectiveness of flap surgery and osseous resective surgery to improve esthetics in patients with altered passive eruption at upper anterior teeth. 5 patients of age range between 20-45 years with altered passive eruption at upper anterior teeth were selected for the study. At baseline mean clinical crown length for central incisor, lateral incisor and canine was (7 ± 0.54) mm (6.6±0.54) mm (7.6±0) mm respectively whereas at 6 months post-operatively it was (9.2 ± 0.54) mm, (7.6± 0.89) and (9.6±0.54) mm respectively. The mean gain of clinical crown length for central incisor, lateral incisor and canine was (2.2 ±1.67) mm, (1.6±0.70) mm and (2 ± 0.54) mm. From the present case series it can be implied that the overall procedure was effective to obtain stable apical shift of the gingival margin position in treating gummy smile.
