Tunnel technique approach in a one-stage treatment of a deep intrabony defect combined with a class IV gingival recession: a case report
Cherel, Fabrice / Puterman, Israel / Etienne, Daniel
This article focuses on a one-stage surgical treatment of a deep intrabony defect associated with a Miller's Class IV recession. The flap design follows the principles of a periodontal plastic surgery procedure, the tunnel technique, with the alliance of a regeneration procedure using a xenograft. The comparison between initial and one-year post-surgical periodontal parameters shows clinical attachment gain, periodontal pocket depth reduction and partial root coverage.

Keywords: connective tissue graft, intrabony defect, periodontal regeneration, root coverage, tunnel technique, xenograft
