Single recession coverage with coronally advanced flap in thin biotype

Aim: Root coverage combining Geistlich Mucograft® with coronally advanced flap (CAF) without the morbidity of soft-tissue graft harvest.

Conclusion: Recession coverage with Geistlich Mucograft® and CAF provides an acceptable option to connective tissue graft and CAF. A notable creeping attachment of the gingiva is observed in this case with Geistlich Mucograft® during the healing of the surgical site and optimal outcomes after 6 months appear to have further improved at 1 year follow-up.
