Abstract

PURPOSE: These case reports show the orthodontic treatment of lower anterior incisors with gingival recession. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Three cases were treated by an orthodontist and a periodontist. Each case had lingually tilted lower anterior incisors, anterior crossbite and skeletal Cl III pattern. RESULTS: A variety of etiological factors were thought to cause gingival recession: aging, oral hygiene, tooth malpositioning, occlusal trauma. CONCLUSION: Due to the interaction among many possible contributing factors, it is difficult to predict whether further gingival recession may occur at a given site. The position and the movement of the lower anterior incisors with gingival recession are important factors in diagnosis and orthodontic treatment planning.
