Abstract

AIM: To evaluate with precision the percentage of root coverage and the increase of soft tissue volume, in single gingival recessions, treated by VISTA+CTG technique. MATERIAL METHODS: Three patients with Miller Class III single gingival recessions in incisors (maxillary or mandibular) were treated by VISTA+CTG technique. Patient's casts were recorded at baseline (T0), 3 and 6 months after surgery (T1 and T2, respectively). The cast were digitalized by an intra-oral scanner and they were superimposed in Geomagic Control X (R) to evaluate and quantify the changes occurred in 3D. RESULTS: At 6 months, VISTA+CTG technique ensure a gingival recession reduction as well as mean root coverage (2,49 mm and 81,28% respectively) and a gingival thickness increase (average 1,17 +/- 0,36 mm). CONCLUSIONS: The results shows that the technique utilized was predictable for the treatment of this gingival recessions and may promote with success the root coverage and the gingival thickening, within the followup time frame.
