Gingival recession

Canine gingival recession

Feline gingival recession

Gingival margin recession is observed as the retreat in an apical direction of the buccal periodontium. Recession of the gingival margin exposes the cementum and in multiple rooted teeth, the furcation. It is common for the tooth to maintain a normal periodontal sulcus depth, so accurate attachment loss should be measured from the gingival margin to the cement-enamel junction (CEJ).


Treatment aims to remove any endotoxins and accumulation form the tooth root, clean the sulcus or pocket and seal the exposed dentinal tubules.
