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.
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)
