Title Clinical Trial of the Efficacy of Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation Compared to Connective Tissue Graft in Treatment of Gingival Recession
Description Studying Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation VS Connective Tissue Graft in the treatment of gingival recession

The study visits will be at UB's South Campus in Buffalo
Objective This is a technique study to compare the efficacy of root coverage achieved by the Pinhole Gum Rejuvenation (PST) technique and the Connective Tissue Graft (CTG) technique in the treatment of Miller class I and II gingival recession defects. The study will use a random, split-mouth, double blind design. Forty two (42) patients will be included, and the sites will be randomly assigned to the CTG (control) or PGR (test) groups. The following variables will be measured at baseline, 6 weeks, 3, 6, and 12 months post-treatment: Recession Depth, Recession classification, percentage root coverage, probing depth, clinical attachment level, width of keratinized tissues, gingival thickness, plaque index, gingival index, healing index, and pain index.
