The clinical study evaluated the short-term outcome (3 months) of root coverage using CAF + mucoderm for the treatment of multiple recessions.
12 patients with overall 38 recessions in the maxilla and mandible were treated. Periodontal parameters, such as CAL, RD, RW, RA, KTW and CEJ-MGJ were analysed.
Mean displacement of the bone graft particles six months post-operative was significantly greater in the test group (3.8±3.1 mm) than in the control group (0.5±0.4 mm)
Post-operative morbidity was significantly more pronounced in the test group (pain 3.3±1.4/swelling 4.3±4.5) than in the control group (2.1±0.9/2.7±0.9)
All main parameters led to a significant decrease of the recessions in comparison to the baseline. The recession depth decreased from 2-0.5mm, the width from 3.5-1.4mm and a gain in the width of keratinized tissue was obtained, as well.
The treatment of Miller class I and II recessions defects in maxilla and mandible resulted in successful average root coverage of 87% after 3 months. The complete root coverage was 47%.
