Evaluation of the awareness of gingival recession amongst patients who underwent root coverage treatment - A retrospective study

Author: VUNNAM SRI SAI CHARAN, NASHRA KAREEM, KIRAN KUMAR PANDURANGAN
Abstract: Gingival recession is defined as when “the location of the gingival margin is apical to the cemento-enamel junction (CEJ)”. The prevalence, extent, and severity of gingival recession increases with age, with at least 40% of young adults and up to 88% of older adults having at least one site with 1 mm or more of recession. Therapeutic options for recessions have been well documented with a high degree of success. Soft tissue grafting procedures represent one of the most common periodontal surgical procedures performed in the U.S. with periodontists performing on average over 100 of these procedures per year. What is not so clear is the etiology of this condition, the role of possible causative factors, and the need for treatment. With such a prevalent condition, it becomes critical to discriminate when to treat such conditions and which require surgical intervention. Several patients present with clinical findings such as gingival recession but not everyone is aware of the importance of gingival recession treatment. In order to create awareness of the same, we must first quantitatively assess the main complaint of patients undergoing root coverage treatment. Undergoing root coverage treatment may not necessarily mean that patients report with the complaint of gingival recession. Therefore, the aim of this study was to evaluate the awareness of gingival recession amongst patients who underwent root coverage treatment. The study included 40 patients who underwent root coverage treatment. The data was collected and recorded from Saveetha dental college and hospital. It was found that out of 40 patients who underwent root coverage treatment, only 8 patients had reported with the chief complaint of gingival recession and wanted it to be treated. Hence to conclude, the results of the present study are useful for generating hypotheses for further research in order to create awareness about the importance of root coverage treatment.
