  Gingival recession is characterized by the exposure of the tooth root surface due to the migration of the apical gingival margin tissue relative to the cement enamel junction [1,2]. Plaque-induced inflammation and toothbrush trauma have been proposed as etiologic factors [3,4], even though this point still needs elucidation [5].

  Diverse surgical techniques were proposed for the treatment of the gingival recessions. Preferably, treatment options should be based on systematic, unbiased, and objective evaluations of the literature [6].
