ABSTRACT:
AIM - The aim of this study is to correlate the gingival width, probing depth and papillary fill in relation to mandibular anterior region. OBJECTIVE - To correlate the gingival thickness with gingival width, probing depth and papillary fill in mandibular anterior region. BACKGROUND - Gingival biotype is of utmost importance for esthetics and biological functions. Anatomical characteristic of periodontium such as gingival thickness, width of keratinized gingiva and alveolar bone morphology will determine the behaviour of periodontium when subjected to physical, chemical or bacterial insult. It helps in the assessment before treatment planning for therapeutic modalities such as orthodontic treatment, periodontal surgeries and implant surgeries. The different biotypes have diverse effects on clinical outcome of any therapeutic procedures. REASON - These parameters are required for treatment planning and can be used to predict the outcome of therapies.
KEYWORDS:
Biotype, gingiva, mandibular anteriors, papillary, periodontium.
