Recession Grafting Surgery
“Thinking Outside the Palate©

Most graft surgery for recession treatment can now be done without palate surgery to harvest free gingival or connective tissue grafts.

Acellular dermis can be used in a simplified technique without tunneling.

New placental membranes bring more options to treating recession defects due to lost attachment. They are easily placed, do not require suturing, and heal without infection or inflammation.

Course Objectives for Participants:
  • Recognize the prevalence of recession defects in general practice.
  • Review anatomy and blood supply of gingival soft tissues.
  • Understand where to use specific perioplastic graft techniques to treat recession sites gaining reattachment and root coverage.
  • Observe new soft tissue surgery techniques with video.
  • Understand the value and use of biological growth factors to enhance soft tissue surgery.
  • Enable participants to treat multiple recession sites in different quadrants in a single surgical visit.
