Abstract

Multiple gingival recessions may cause mainly dentinary sensibility and aesthetic alterations. The subepithelial graft is a mucogingival technique which can be used to treat multiple gingival recessions. In this case report the Erbium YAG laser was applied to promote radicular surface decontamination, an important step to reach reinsertion of the gingival tissues on exposed radicular surface. Our clinical findings suggest that this technique may be a predictable procedure to treat gingival recession and promote root decontamination.

Keywords: Gingival recession, Surgery, Bucal, Laser therapy.
