ABSTRACTThe treatment of periodontal recession (coverage of exposed roots) constitutes a challenge for periodontists and is considered an integral but complex part of their surgical practice. Platelet-rich fibrin and leukocytes, is an autologous biomaterial that can be placed under coronally repositioned pedicle graft, which would promote the regeneration of lost tissues. We present a 40-year-old patient, treated with this biomaterial, which was applied in multiple gingival recessions with cervical glass-ionomer restorations. An increase of the attached gingiva, root coverage and elimination of concomitant dentin hyperesthesia was obtained.
