One of the periodontal plastic surgery techniques for the treatment of gum recession is the realization of a laterally advanced flap.
Firstly, incisions are designed and performed to allow mobilizing part of the gingiva from a donor area.
After that, the recipient area where the recession is located is prepared.
Finally the gum from the donor area is mobilized and repositioned suturing it in a new position, thus covering the recession. This flap will settle and mature in this new position.
