Treatment of Gingival Recession with Modified Coronally Advanced Tunnel Technique: A Case Report

Ridhima Singhal [3] | Vaishali Pagade [3] | Richa Verma [4] | Deepti Anand [2]

Abstract: Gingival recession (GR) is the displacement of gingival margin apical to the cemento - enamel junction (CEJ) with a resultant exposure of root surface. Treatment for GR is primarily done for improvingesthetic, eliminating dentin hypersensitivity and for minimizing the risk of root caries. Modified coronally advanced tunnel technique (MCAT) is a highly effective and predictable procedure in the treatment of multiple GR defects. This case report presents the treatment of root coverage with MCAT and subepithelial connective tissue autogenous graft as a means of aesthetic and functional rehabilitation of the keratinized gingival tissue. One month post operatively, uneventful healing was observed with a 3 mm root coverage.

Keywords: Gingival recession, connective tissue, autograft
