Topic: Recession Coverage at Crown Restored Teeth and Dental Implants

Predictable recession coverage at crown restored teeth and dental implants is still a challenge for the clinician. A number of factors such as anatomy and position, recession depth and width, presence, or absence of supporting bone, and thickness of the soft tissues may limit the management of soft tissues and consequently impair the outcomes. Emerging evidence indicates that by having a correct indication, the modified coronally advanced tunnel (MCAT), the laterally closed tunnel (LCT) or the very recently described combination of MCAT and LCT in conjunction with connective tissue grafts, certain collagen based soft tissue grafts alone or combined with other biologic materials such as enamel matrix proteins or hyaluronic acid may result in predictable outcomes and long-term stability.
