2: Moderate deposits of plaque adhering to free gingival margin
and adjacent area of the tooth, which can be seen with the naked eyes.
Gingival thickness of each tooth was measured at the apical from free gingival margin
and coronal from mucogingival junction (Figure 2).
The PI was scored on a scale of 0 to 3, where 0 = no plaque in the gingival area; 1 = a film of adherent plaque was present on the free gingival margin
and the adjacent area of the tooth; 2 = moderate accumulation of soft deposits within the gingival pocket and on the gingival margin and/ or adjacent tooth surface which could be seen by the naked eye; 3 = an abundance of soft matter within the gingival pocket and/or on the gingival margin and adjacent tooth surface.
The PD was measured from the free gingival margin
to the base of the pocket.
Clinical periodontal parameters included plaque index (PI)(22), gingival index (GI) (23), PD, clinical attachment level (CAL) and gingival recession (GR).The distance from the free gingival margin
to the bottom of the periodontal pocket was defined as PD.
(11) As fractured fragment was not there the sub gingival fractured area was replaced with composite upto free gingival margin
. Currently the patient was under annual follow up.
