Clinical Insights About the Treatment of Recession-type Defects and Soft Tissue Phenotype Modification Around Teeth and Implants

Periodontal and peri-implant soft tissue augmentation plastic procedures have long been used for the treatment of gingival recession (GR) and mucogingival deformities around natural teeth and dental implants. During daily practice, clinicians are required to deal with diverse clinical scenarios and to provide the most adequate treatment options for each particular condition based on the best evidence available, the clinician’s skills, and the patients’ desires.

Learning Objectives:

      1. To define the main factors influencing the predictability of root coverage procedures according to the different patient-, procedure- and outcome-related factors
      2. To translate evidence-based findings to clinical practice, by presenting treatment approaches to the most common “clinical scenarios” related to gingival recession treatment and soft tissue phenotype modification around natural teeth and dental implants
      3. To identify the influence of the keratinized tissue band on the long-term stability of results achieved by reconstructive soft tissue procedures
