Treatment of multiple gingival recessions using subepithelial connective tissue grafting with a single-incision technique.

Abstract

The increasing interest in esthetics and the subsequent need to solve related problems such as dentin hypersensitivity and root caries have favored the development of many surgical techniques that permit the coverage of exposed roots. In this case, a 47-year-old female patient presented seeking resolution of dentin hypersensitivity with multiple gingival recessions in the upper anterior region. A coronally positioned flap combined with connective tissue grafting using a single-incision technique was applied to achieve root coverage. The treated site showed improvement of root coverage with reduction of dentin hypersensitivity without any probing defect or significant complication. The single-incision technique may be an option for harvesting of graft material in the treatment of multiple gingival recessions.
