Gingival Recession in a Child‑Patient; Easily Missed Etiologies: Case Report with Video


Nwhator SO

Gingival recession is commonly associated with plaqueâ????induced inflammation and calculus. A high frenal attachment is more important in gingival recession in the childâ????patient. A healthy childâ????patient with impeccable oral hygiene presented with localized gingival recession without plaqueâ????induced inflammation which led to the exploration of other possible etiologies. Multiple factors appeared to be acting in consonance (Concomitant multiple etiologies [CME]). The factors were a high frenal attachment, traumatic overbite and bruxism induced by premature tooth contacts. Pedodontists and periodontists should rule out CME in cases of gingival recession in the childâ????patient.
