In this presentation, Professor Anton Sculean (Bern) demonstrates the coverage of recession defects in the case of exposed root surfaces using Straumann Emdogain. To begin with, an intrasulcular incision is made on the facial side of the teeth in question. An entire buccal flap layer is prepared, which merges into a split flap once the mucogingival junction is passed. This is followed by elevation of the papillae using an angled tunnelling instrument. The root surfaces are then cleaned using a Gracey curette. Using the single-incision technique, access is prepared to the subepithelial donor tissue in the hard palate area. Undermining, medial preparation is used to separate the connective tissue that is harvested for the purposes of recession defect coverage from the bone. The tissue is then placed on gauze. The root surfaces are conditioned for two minutes using Straumann PrefGel. Straumann Emdogain is applied both to the root surfaces and to the graft. The graft is secured using double-sling suturing and guided accordingly into the recipient bed from the mesial towards the distal area. It is sutured together with the tunnel flap on both the mesial and the distal side, in order to prevent changes in position in the recipient bed. Using sling sutures adds additional stability to the graft. At the end of his presentation, Professor Sculean demonstrates the consistently positive outcome of recession defect coverage by comparing the situation prior to surgery with the final result.
