Abstract

Gingival recession is defined as apical migration of gingival margins resulting in exposure of the root surface. It can be either localized or generalized, involving one or more than 1 surfaces and there by leading to functional & esthetic problems like hypersensitivity, cervical abrasions & root caries. Various techniques have been developed to achieve root coverage. The current case report describes treatment of multiple class I gingival recession using vestibular incision sub periosteal tunnel access (VISTA) technique and platelet rich fibrin (PRF) membrane. Position of gingiva was maintained using coronally anchored sutures during initial healing period. The use of PRF membrane along with the VISTA allows clinicians to successfully treat multiple gingival recession defects.
