El tratamiento de recesiones gingivales es una práctica común en la periodoncia actual, adicionalmente, hay cada vez mayor demanda estética por parte de los pacientes. Muchas veces se deben tratar múltiples recesiones gingivales adyacentes, con la limitación en la cantidad de tejido donador autólogo disponible.

En la literatura no se han reportado tratamientos de recesiones múltiples adyacentes Miller clase III, en el sector anterior superior, donde se combine el uso de colgajo tipo túnel posicionado coronalmente con aloinjerto.

Este documento reporta el tratamiento de este tipo de recesiones usando el colgajo tipo túnel posicionado coronalmente y matriz dérmica acelular.

Palabras clave: Recesiones gingivales, matriz dérmica acelular, alloderm.


Treatment of gingival recessions is a common practice in current periodontics, in addition, the demand for aesthetics has increased. Plenty of times; multiple gingival recessions, in need of treatment, face the shortcoming of insufficient connective tissue donor availability.

In the literature there are no reports for the treatment of multiple adjacent Miller class III gingival recessions in the anterosuperior area using a coronally positioned tunnel flap and allograft.

This document reports the treatment of multiple Miller class III gingival recessions with reduced keratinized tissue in an aesthetic compromised area using the coronally positioned tunnel flap with acellular dermal matrix.

Keywords: Gingival recessions, acellular dermal matrix, alloderm.
