Several incision and flap designs (traditional coronally advanced flap (CAF), crestal, lateral and apical tunnel approaches) have been advocated to treat recession and dehiscence defects around teeth and implants. The goal of this point-counterpoint debate is to discuss the pros and cons of each approach and provide clinical tips of how to successfully perform these procedures. Additionally, indications and precautions of each flap design will also be demonstrated and thoroughly debated. Furthermore, the long-term stability of the quantity and quality of the grafted tissue after these procedures will also be presented.

Educational Objectives:

  • Recognize indications, precautions, pros and cons of each incision and flap design (traditional coronally advanced flap (CAF), crestal, lateral and apical tunnel approaches).
  • Discuss when to choose which technique over the other approaches.
  • Gain familiarity with the surgical technique and instrumentation required for a successful outcome.
