Recession Coverage

Prof. Giovanni Zucchelli
Bologna, Italy


Single recession coverage with coronally advanced flap in thin biotype

Aim: Root coverage and increase in buccal soft-tissue thickness.

Conclusion: Aesthetic root coverage with CAF and Geistlich Mucograft® might be an alternative option to connective tissue graft and CAF. An increase of keratinised tissue and gingival thickness was observed during the healing of the treated site. In this case, 100% of root coverage and an excellent aesthetic outcome were achieved.
