Does anyone have a good picture of a gingival dehiscence that I could use in a PowerPoint presentation? Youíll be credited for the picture - Charles Hello Dr Young, here is a Picture of a gingival dehiscence in tooth 26, Hope it will help you with your seminars - Caracas Venezuela Dr. Burguera, Here is a copy of the slide that Iíll use in the presentation. I live near Memphis, TN and as Elvis Presley would say:Thank you, thank you very much! - Charles Not meaning to nitpick, but some of the reason you may not be getting many pictures is the use of the term gingival dehiscence I don't think this is correct. I think the term dehiscence refers to the bone rather than the gingiva, as in this definition of root dehiscence: A loss of the buccal or lingual bone overlaying the root portion of a tooth, leaving that area covered by soft tissue only. If you are referring to something similar to the image supplied to you by Eliana, I think that this is more accurately described as localized recession or a gingival cleft rather than dehiscence.Dorland's Medical dictionary defines a gingival cleft as an area of isolated gingival recession occurring over a dehiscence of the bone covering the root". I enclose a couple of  example images I found on the web. - Rob K I am with you Rob, this is the way those terms are used in Israel. Dehiscence and Fenestration refer to bone. - Thomas Rob, Iím glad that you do nitpick and I stand corrected.It behooves us all to be as accurate as possible in our terminology.In every day conversation with patients, I find myself speaking more in laymanís terms and it can become too much a part of me. Regards, - Charles (Thank you the pictures-----Iíll correct my slide)
