Case description

Gingival recession is a fairly common clinical condition affecting approximately one in four adults in the U.S. and particularly prevalent in adults ages 65 and older. If left untreated, it can cause sensitivity, decay and bone loss. Fortunately, gum grafting (also known as gingival grafting) procedures can help reverse the effects of gum recession, restoring oral health and protecting against further damage. Join Dr. David Wong, a leading clinician, influencer, and renowned lecturer, for a step-by-step approach to gum grafts, including an overview of several cases from his periodontics practice. Dr. Wong will review how he leverages cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) to assess the health and density of gum tissue, as well as: • The factors that go into evaluating whether a patient is a suitable candidate for gum grafts, such as the degree of gum recession and sensitivity • The different types of gum grafting procedures available, including connective tissue grafts, free gingival grafts and pedicle grafts, and how to determine which type is the appropriate option for a patient • Complications that can arise, including how to save a failed or difficult case
