Periodontal Plastic Surgery

• Periodontal plastic surgical procedures aiming to treat multiple recession defects have been extensively described in the literature. Most of them can be combined with CTG or with soft tissue substitutes in order to increase the marginal gingiva thickness which in turn ensures the long term stability.
• Nevertheless, the surgical techniques used are very technical sensitive and need a deep knowledge on behalf of the clinician in order to obtain predictable results.
• The course will focus on presenting step by step of the tunnel technique and a comprehensive philosophy of surgical risk factors which need to take into account to optimize the clinical outcomes. Clinical cases and surgical techniques using connective tissue grafts and a new resorbable matrix will be demonstrated.
