Evaluating the efficacy of a minimally invasive root coverage procedure with platelet rich fibrin using the gum drop technique

AUTHOR(S): Dr. Samjotha Dharma, Dr. Shivaprasad and Dr. Sahana Purushotham
ABSTRACT:Gingival recession is manifested as an apical displacement of the gingival tissues, leading to root surface exposure. They may cause root hypersensitivity, root caries, and pose esthetic concerns to patients when left untreated. Various surgical treatment modalities are being practised to treat these mucogingival defects. The innovations and the advances in the surgical techniques has led to the development of surgeries that could be done with minimal tissue manipulation and trauma improving the healing and overall clinical parameters. In the current study a novel, minimally invasive surgical approach called the Gum Drop Technique, which utilises both A-PRF membrane and i-PRF as the regenerative biomaterials for recession defects in the maxillary anterior region has been described.
