CELORIA, Antônio; SIGUA-RODRIGUEZ, Eder Alberto  and  OLATE, Sergio. Gingival Increase Based on Hyaluronic Acid in Peri Implant and Periodontal Defects. A Case Series Analysis. Int. J. Odontostomat. [online]. 2017, vol.11, n.4, pp.431-435. ISSN 0718-381X.

Hyaluronic acid has been used in different anatomical areas, where its application and use for facial rejuvenation as well as joint injuries are known. However, information of its application in periodontal and peri implant defects is limited. The aim of this research is to show the clinical results of a case series in subjects with minor periodontal defects treated with the application of hyaluronic acid. Four subjects with black spaces and gingival recessions were included; the protocol for application of 0.2% hyaluronic acid was realized at different times; the clinical follow-up showed efficiency in the aesthetic recovery and stability in the increases. It is possible to conclude that this minimally invasive technique is promising to treat minor periodontal and peri implant defects.

Keywords : hyaluronic acid; implant esthetic; periodontal defects.
