MUCOGINGIVAL DEFORMITIES AND CONDITIONS AROUND TEETH
In mucogingival deformation is a significant change in morphology, size, and the relationship between the gums and alveolar mucosa that may lead to the underlying bone. The recession of the gingival margin
is the most common mucogingival deformation and is characterized by the amount of gingival apical from cementoenamel junction (Fig. 17-15-17-18).
