Twenty buccogingival recessions (3 mm deep) in twenty patients were selected and divided into two groups. Periodontal parameters were recorded (recession reduction, probing depth, clinical attachment level, and keratinized tissue width), and both groups were treated with regenerative therapy using a resorbable polylactic acid membrane. The test group was treated using the double papilla flap procedure, and the control group was treated using the coronally repositioned flap procedure. The results obtained at a 1-year follow-up were comparable between the test and control groups for recession reduction, probing depth, and clinical attachment level, although the test group obtained a very large amount of keratinized gingiva (+ 74.7%) compared to the control group.
