Zenoss Matrix Membrane - Connective Tissue Grafting for Root Coverage
After endo treatment and replacement of the coronal part of teeth with casted post, the root has changed colour and became visible through thin mucosa.
For concealing effect it was decided to add thickness of the mucous membrane. Instead of taking a tissue graft from the patient, Zenoss Matrix was used.
1. An incision was made, followed by dissection of papillae, flap mobilization, membrane fixation, and flap suturing.
2. The membrane, after putting in sterile saline solution, swells and increases in size to approx. 2.5mm thickness.
At 3-month post-op, prosthetic phase was started. During this time a temporary crown was used with a correction of marginal edge length.
