The treatment of non-inflammatory gingival recessions is carried out in two main stages. The first stage is the removal of the cause of the recession, and the second stage is a microsurgical plastic surgery, through which the level of the bone and gum are restored.

In recessions due to improper brushing (often using horizontal instead of vertical movements), the technique of tooth brushing should be corrected during the first stage of treatment.
In recessions due to improper prosthetic treatment with removable partial dentures, the causal factor should be corrected during the first stage of treatment – incorrectly made hooks or inaccuracies in the plastic part of the prosthesis.
In recessions due to poorly constructed bridges and crowns, the problematic devices are removed, and temporary ones made of plastic are placed during the first stage of treatment, which after the second (operational) phase are replaced with new properly constructed permanent devices.
In gingival recession due to clenching and grinding of teeth (read more … for bruxism), after the parafunctions are removed, it can be proceeded to the plastic surgery closure of the bare root.
The second stage is microsurgical periodontal surgery, which can be only mucosal grafting or mucosal grafting combined with bone grafting. Which method will be chosen depends on the size of the recession and the discretion of the dentist.

Oral mucosal grafting
In many cases of gingival recession there is not enough soft tissue (gum).

Dental bone grafting
In severe gingival recession, periodontitis and periodontal abscess, there is.

In gingival recession caused by frenum (muscle attachments between two tissues), the first stage is to correct the anatomical defect by periodontal plastic surgery called dental frenectomy.

Dental frenectomy
The frenum (frenulum) is a small tissue fold, which connects.
