Different root coverage procedures have been used to treat cases of gingival recession defects involving single or multiple exposed root surfaces. A therapeutic advantage may be gained if periodontal regeneration is obtained in addition to coverage of the root with gingiva. This article describes the treatment of gingival recession by combining a surgical technique with an enamel matrix derivative.
