Mucosal Coronally Positioned Flap for the Management of Excessive Gingival Display in the Presence of Hypermobility of the Upper Lip and Vertical Maxillary Excess: A Case Report
Excessive gingival display is a frequent
finding that can occur because of various
intraoral or extraoral etiologies. This report describes
the use of a mucosal coronally positioned flap for the
management of a gummy smile associated with vertical
maxillary excess and hypermobility of the upper
lip. For patients desiring a less invasive
alternative to orthognathic surgery, the mucosal coronally
positioned flap is a viable alternative. We demonstrate
short-term successful use of this technique
for the management of excessive gingival display in
the presence of slight vertical maxillary excess and
hypermobility of the upper lip. Long-term follow-up
studies are needed to determine stability of the results.
