Use of a New Collagen Matrix (Mucograft) for the Treatment of Multiple Gingival Recessions: Case Reports
Rotundo, Roberto / Pini-Prato, Giovanpaolo
The aim of this case report study was to demonstrate the use of a new collagen matrix as an alternative to the connective tissue graft for the treatment of multiple gingival recessions. Three women showing 11 maxillary gingival recessions were treated by means of the envelope flap technique associated with a novel collagen matrix as a substitute for the connective tissue graft. At 1 year, complete root coverage was achieved in 9 treated sites, with a mean keratinized tissue width of 3.1 mm, complete resolution of dental hypersensitivity, and a high level of esthetic satisfaction.
