Abstract

Introduction: Miller’s Class III gingival recession represents a challenging condition with a low predictability in order to obtain successful outcomes. The purpose of this case report is to document the management of an isolated Class III gingival recession (Rec) with Coronally Advanced Flap in combination with Subepithelial Connective Tissue Graft. Presentation of the case: A 45 years-old female with a 2 mm Rec associated with interproximal attachment loss at the upper left canine requested a dental cosmetic treatment for this area. A bilaminar technique was performed in order to solve the aesthetic impairment. Results at short (1 year) and long term (10 years) are reported. Discussion: At 1-year follow up a complete root coverage with no interproximal attachment loss was observed, with an increased amount of keratinized tissue width and thickness. Optimal aesthetic outcome was accomplished with complete patient satisfaction. However, at 10-year follow-up 1mm Rec on mesio-buccal and buccal sites associated to a non-carious cervical lesion (NCCL) were noticed, associated with a bruxism pattern in combination with a relapse of traumatic brushing technique and vigorous use of interdental brushes. At this time, reinstruction to the appropriate domiciliary oral hygiene procedures and a composite restoration were performed in order to solve the clinical condition. Conclusion: At 1-year follow-up Rec associated to attachment loss and NCCL can be successfully managed by means of bilaminar technique and conservative restorations. However, a careful assessment of prognostic factors must be considered in order to achieve successful treatment outcomes in the long-term.
