The Connective Tissue Graft (CTG) & Root Coverage

Receding gums

The Connective Tissue Graft (CTG) is our esthetic workhorse. It can be used to cover exposed roots. The predictability of the root coverage depends, among other things, on the extent of attachment loss. The best way know what to expect from a root coverage procedure is to use Miller’s Classification of Gingival Recession. Class I              Recession not reaching the Mucogingival Junction. Complete root coverage is expected. Class II             Recession past the Mucogingival Junction with no interproximal tissue loss. Complete root is expected. Class III            Recession with interproximal tissue (bone) loss. Only partial root coverage is expected. Class IV           Severe Recession / interproximal tissue loss. Root coverage not expected
