Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


The primary objective of periradicular surgery is the predictable regeneration of periapical tissues with complete restoration of the anatomy of the mucogingival complex. In the recent years, aesthetics has become a fundamental factor in the evaluation of the treatment outcome, and surgeons have adopted specific techniques in order to preserve and enhance the aesthetics of the dentition and periodontium. In this investigation, the authors propose a surgical technique that allows the clinician to achieve optimal outcomes in endodontics, periodontics, and aesthetics for teeth selected for endodontic micro-surgery, in which recession is present.
