Root coverage is the goal of periodontal plastic surgery when treating gingival recessions. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the clinical results 1 year after treatment with an envelope connective tissue graft technique for single recessions. Forty consecutive patients with single recessions were treated. At baseline and 1 year after surgery, recession, probing pocket depth, clinical attachment level, and keratinized tissue height were recorded. After 1 year, the mean differences in recession (3.12 0.90 mm), clinical attachment level (3.92 1.00 mm), keratinized tissue height (3.75 0.95 mm), and probing pocket depth (0.50 0.64 mm) were statistically significant. Mean root coverage was 95.54% 11.43%; 85% of the treated cases achieved complete root coverage. The envelope connective tissue graft technique showed high predictability in the treatment of single recessions. (Int J Periodontics Restorative Dent 2009;29:593597.)
