Gingival recession, a common occurrence
across various populations, is characterized by the
displacement of gingival tissues towards the root, leading
to exposure of the root surface. This condition can raise
concerns for patients due to root hypersensitivity,
erosion, root caries, and aesthetic reasons. In recent
times, novel techniques for surgically treating multiple
adjacent recession type defects have been proposed.
These techniques are primarily based on the coronally
advanced flap approach, which involves a supra- or
subperiosteal tunnel technique combined with a
subepithelial connective tissue graft, graft substitutes or
growth factors. The aim of the the present case reports is
to outline a minimally invasive approach known as
vestibular incision subperiosteal tunnel access along with
connective tissue graft, which overcomes the drawbacks
of other conventional tunneling techniques or classic root
coverage procedures. Overall, this innovative technique
offer promising solutions for addressing gingival
recession and its associated concerns, providing potential
benefits to patients seeking treatment for this condition.
