Objectives: The aim of the present study was to compare clinical outcomes of split thickness coronally repositioned flap (CRF) without vertical releasing incisions and full thickness CRF with vertical releasing incisions in the treatment of localized gingival recessions. Materials and Methods: Nineteen systemically and periodontally healthy patients with bilateral Miller class I recession defects were enrolled in the study. Control recession defects were treated full thickness CRF with vertical releasing incisions and test recession defects were treated split thickness CRF without vertical releasing incissions. Porbing depth (PD), Recession depth (RD), Recession width (RW), Keratinized tissue width (KTW) and Clinical athacment level (CAL) were measured at baseline and 3 and 6 months after the treatment. Results: Both groups showed statistically significant gain in Clinical Athacment Level and statistically significant reduction in Recession Depth, Recession Width, Probing Depth. The differences between groups were not statistically significant for Recession Depth; Recession Width; Probing Depth; Keratinized Tissue Width and Clinical Athacment Level after 6 months. Conclusion: This clinical study showed that, modified CRF technique is as effective as clasical CRF technique for the treatment of localized gingival recession.
