Keynote Presentation

Recession coverage in the mandible: possibilities and limits

Martina Stefanini, Italy

Learning Objectives
– To understand, why mandibular recessions should be treated.
– To learn which is the most effective technique for the treatment of mandibular recessions.
– To learn how to surgically overcome the unfavourable anatomic conditions often present in the lower mandible?

Abstract
Predictable coverage of single and multiple mandibular gingival recessions is one of the most challenging endeavours in plastic-aesthetic periodontal surgery.
The treatment is often complex and influenced by a number of factors such as tooth position, vestibulum depth and tissue phenotype and can be performed with different surgical techniques.
This keynote lecture will provide the biological and clinical rationale together with the scientific evidence on the treatment of single and multiple mandibular recessions setting the stage for the live surgical demonstration.
