One-stage treatment of multiple recessions in the esthetic area with the bilaminar technique: clinical procedures and 24-month follow-up
Mensi, Magda / Scotti, Eleonora / Salgarello, Stefano / Cerutti, Antonio
The aim of this case report was to treat eight simultaneous recessions that caused an unesthetic smile in a 27-year-old orthodontically treated female patient and to restore the anterior maxillary teeth in the esthetic area. The treatment consisted of bilaminar mucogingival surgery with a palatine graft and a collagen matrix graft (Mucograft, Geistlich). At 24 months, complete root coverage was achieved in all treated sites, with an increase of keratinized tissue (KT), complete resolution of hypersensitivity, and a high level of esthetic satisfaction. This case report shows that it is possible to correct multiple unesthetic recessions in one stage thanks to the combination of a connective tissue graft (CTG), a collagen matrix graft, and a coronally advanced flap (CAF).
