This interactive, live-surgery session will present an efficient technique for connective tissue grafting that consistently yields 95-98% root coverage in Miller class I and II recession defects in a real-world environment. Root coverage surgery will be performed with both the gold standard and an alternative to connective tissue emphasizing surgical nuances to ensure the best outcome.

- Review connective tissue and substitutes for root coverage.
- Grasp controlling defect, patient, and surgical factors to improve outcomes.
