BACKGROUND Various surgical procedures have been proposed as effective treatment methods for recession defects. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical outcome of root coverage comparing the coronally positioned flap (CPF) with and without guided tissue regeneration (GTR) using a titanium-reinforced expanded polytetrafluoroethylene barrier in paired gingival recession defects. METHODS Procedures were performed in 10 patients having bilateral buccal recession defects > or = 2.0… CONTINUE READING
