CTG Case 1 - Patient came to us looking for options to improve the appearance of her smile. She was born without the lateral incisors and has bridges to fill the spaces. Initially, she desired dental implants to replace her bridges but was so happy with the improvement from connective tissue grating the central incisors, that she decided not to replace her bridges.
CTG Case 5 - Lingual CTG- This patient was experiencing continued bone loss and gum recession on the tongue side of her lower front teeth. Like many people, she had difficultly keeping the area clean between cleanings. The teeth became mobile due to the bone loss so a splint was required to permanently support them. Connective tissue grafts were also done to raise the gum line and thicken the gum tissue, making it easier and more comfortable for her to clean.
