Single and multiple gingival recessions are still a frequent problem associated with difficulties in performing optimal plaque control, impaired aesthetics and increase in dentine hypersensitivity.
Despite the fact that in the last decades, several surgical techniques have been proposed aiming for predictable root coverage, this goal is still difficult to be achieved. The use of palatal connective tissue graft in conjunction with Coronally Advanced Flaps (CAF) or the Modified Coronally Advanced Tunnel (MCAT) have been shown to result in predictable outcomes and improved long-term stability.
The aim of the present workshop is therefore to present the step-by-step surgical procedure for treatment of single and multiple gingival recessions using the MCAT and connective tissue grafts. Case presentations will illustrate the indications, the surgical technique and the postoperative management of clinical cases.
The workshop will include:
