Abstract

Background: The connective tissue graft procedure is an effective method to achieve root coverage. Although multiple sites often need grafting, the palatal mucosa supplies only, limited area of grafting material. The expanded mesh graft provides a method whereby a graft can be stretched to cover a larger area. The aim of this study was to determine the effectiveness and the predictability of expanded mesh connective tissue graft (e-MCTG) in the treatment of multiple gingival recessions.
