Recession: Frenectomy and tunnelled connective graft
The following patient was referred to us, non-smoking and with no relevant medical history,
who presented with this Miller Class II recession in a central lower incisor. She also presented with a high frenal attachment, which alongside her fine gingival biotype was a factor in the recession.
We proceeded with a combined approach – we performed a frenectomy and also a connective tissue graft taken from the palate, which we placed using a tunnel and fixed to the teeth with sutures.
As you can observe in the photographs, there was healing at one week, 20 days and 8 weeks.
We hope you find it interesting.
