CONCLUSION The present study gives a thorough understanding into the application of principles of GTR using RCM with CAF procedure for the treatment of gingival recession. The results of the present study suggest that CAF and CAF + RCM both can be successfully used to treat Miller’s Class I and Class II gingival recession defects with overall significant improvement in all the assessed clinical parameters. The results of the study found no significant difference between two groups with regard to the outcome of the treatment. More studies are required in future to compare the results obtained by the proposed technique with other perio‑plastic surgical techniques with longer follow‑up, and involving larger sample size is warranted to evaluate whether RCM provides better and stable results. Furthermore, histological evaluation is necessary to assess the type of attachment obtained with the use of RCM. Financial support and sponsorship Nil.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
