Gingival recessions are of concern both esthetically and functionally for the dental patient. Bioabsorbable barriers were used to simultaneously treat six mucogingival recessions affecting six teeth in both maxillary quadrants of a 34-year-old woman. Root exposures ranging from 4 to 6 mm were successfully treated; complete root coverage was obtained at all treated sites. Follow-up visits up to 18 months revealed the stability of the clinical outcome, confirming the efficacy of the procedure.
