Application of Fibrin Sealant in the Treatment of Root Coverage Procedure - A Case Report

Aaesha I. A Khan | Sujeet V. Khiste

Abstract: Suturing is considered to be an important part in periodontal surgery. One requires skills, it is time consuming, difficulty in maintaining plaque control and can often cause discomfort to the patient. Sometimes loosening of suture may also occur which can impair the wound healing of the tissue which can negatively impact the outcome of the surgery. To overcome this newer technique have been introduced one such is tissue adhesive called fibrin glue. Fibrin sealant can be prepared from the patient?s own blood (autologous) or derived from donated blood which mimics the final stages of coagulation with better healing and good stability after flap closure by stimulating blood clotting mechanism. This case report shows the use of commercially available fibrin glue and its role in tissue adaptability and wound healing in the treatment of Miller?s class II gingival recession of a single tooth.
