The Laterally Closed Tunnel for the Treatment of Deep Isolated Mandibular Recessions: Surgical Technique and a Report of 24 Cases
Anton Sculean, Prof Dr Med Dent, MS, Dr hc/Edward P. Allen, DDS, PhD

Minimally invasive techniques continue to be developed and adopted based on the recognized patient benefits and clinical results. “The Laterally Closed Tunnel for Treatment of Deep Isolated Mandibular Recessions: Surgical Technique and a Report of 24 Cases” is presented by Sculean and Allen. This manuscript presents a technical approach for mandibular anterior deep isolated recession defects, combining laterally closed tunnel, enamel matrix derivative, and connective tissue graft. The data collected at the 12-month follow-ups on 24 cases demonstrated complete root coverage for 17 defects (71%), 80% to 90% root coverage for 6 cases, and 79% root coverage for a single case.

The clinical study presents a predictable approach for challenging isolated root coverage cases. The authors conclude that “laterally closed tunnel is a valuable approach for the treatment of deep isolated mandibular Miller Class I, II, and III gingival recessions.”
