BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to evaluate root coverage of gingival recessions and to compare graft vascularization in smokers and non-smokers. METHODS Thirty subjects, 15 smokers and 15 non-smokers, were selected. Each subject had one Miller Class I or II recession in a non-molar tooth. Clinical measurements of probing depth (PD), relative clinical attachment level (CAL), gingival recession (GR), and width of keratinized tissue (KT) were determined at baseline and 3 and 6 months after… CONTINUE READING
