JUAREZ-MEMBRENO, Israel Antonio. Surgical Treatment of the Recession in the Anterior Sector through the Modified Tunnel Technique Using the Acellular Dermal Matrix. Rev. Clin. Periodoncia Implantol. Rehabil. Oral [online]. 2019, vol.12, n.2, pp.103-105. ISSN 0719-0107.


The purpose of the case report was to evaluate the radicular coverage (RC) in the upper anterior sector after having performed the modified tunnel technique using the Acellular Dermal Matrix (ADM).

Clinical considerations:

The literature has described the use of the tunnel technique for several decades and in recent years has been perfected with displacement of the gingival tissue to coronal with the use of ADM to achieve better results. Although in clinical situations of gingival recession (GR) coverage it is questionable which technique can be more effective and there are different alternatives, the tunneling technique plus coronal displacement flap using ADM is a promising line of research and is not yet concluded so it would be interesting to deepen in this regard.


The clinical case presents the follow-up of a patient with recession type 1 (RT1) who was operated using ADM and the modified tunnel technique demonstrating that it can be effective in the total coverage of the recession with sustainable aesthetic results in a period of 24 months.

Palabras clave : Acellular dermal matrix; Gingival recession.
