Periodontology deals more and more with the problem of gingival recessions. It is a frequently seen diagnosis in the anterior region. Especially high smile lines can cause significant restricted aesthetics for the patient. Aesthetic motivations are therefore by far the most relevant indication for recession coverage in periodontology.
One of the most common and also most recognized techniques for root coverage is the coronal sliding flap in different modifications. In the present case Wachtel is covering multiple recessions in the canine area with a coronal displacement and subepithelial connective tissue, avoiding vertical releasing incisions.
