About this book

Introduction

This book is an evidence-based guide to periodontal root coverage that provides up-to-date information on the etiology of gingival recession defects, prognostic factors relating to the defect, patient, or operator, and surgical techniques. Attention is drawn to critical elements in the execution of surgical procedures that can impact on outcomes. In order to ensure that the guidance reflects the highest level of evidence, the authors have undertaken an exhaustive literature search of the four main electronic databases (MEDLINE/PubMed, Cochrane Library, ScienceDirect, and EBSCOhost) for studies on root coverage, including randomized clinical trials, systematic reviews, meta-analyses, and network meta-analyses. The aim is to supply readers with a truly reliable source of knowledge that will help them to navigate this complex field, in which numerous surgical procedures have been described, with great variability in clinical and statistical outcomes. The book will be of value to all who wish to improve their understanding of gingival recession defects and the techniques to achieve root coverage that offer the best long-term results.
