Long-term evaluation of lower incisors gingival recessions after orthodontic treatment

Published inEuropean Journal of Orthodontics, vol. 41, no. 6, p. 559-564
Publication date2019

The development of gingival recessions has been associated with orthodontic treatment; however, a clear etiology is still unknown. The aim of the present study was to further clarify potential association between the development of labial and lingual recessions and inclination of the lower incisors during orthodontic treatment, vertical facial morphology, width of the alveolar bone process, height and width of their symphysis after orthodontic treatment and at long-term retention.
