Abstract

Gingival recession, defined as the apical migration of gingival margin possesses great degree of functional and aesthetic problems. Recently new techniques for root coverage have been proposed for treating multiple teeth recession. Keeping in mind the limitations of the conventional techniques, a minimally invasive approach for the recipient site in the aesthetic zone, Vestibular Incision Subperiosteal Tunnel Access (VISTA) technique had been introduced. Since the connective tissue graft is the proven gold standard, it is combined with the minimally invasive technique to achieve the best possible result. Here, a series of such cases are discussed and the 6 months post operative follow up is hence analysed to assess the root coverage.

Keywords: Gingival recession, Minimally invasive, Root coverage, VISTA, Connective tissue graft.
