Factors Associated With the Interdental Papilla Height Between Two Maxillary Central Incisors: A Radiographic Study

Journal of Periodontology, 06/03/2011

Chang LC – In subjects with papilla recession, both IW and CW affect clinically observable papilla height (COPH) and papilla height (PH). The effects of age, BC–pCEJ on COPH differ in subjects without/with recession, suggesting that the initial change in COPH is large, but later slows after recession occurs if without severe interdental bone loss. However, further clinical study is needed to find out other variables which may decrease or ameliorate the severity of central papilla recession by restorative/prosthetic or orthodontic intervention and to confirm this possibility.
