Gingival recession is an exposure of root surface due to the apical migration of the marginal periodontal tissues apical to cementoenamel junction. Many therapeutic options are available for the treatment of gingival recession, among these techniques, Vestibular Incision Subperiosteal Tunnel Access (VISTA) technique in combination with collagen membrane (BIO-GIDE) was used in the present study for the treatment of multiple gingival recession defects in the maxillary anterior region. In the VISTA technique, a single vestibular incision provides broader access to the entire surgical area which reduces the possibility of traumatizing the gingiva, with little or no scar formation. And the use of collagen membrane offers several advantages over other techniques as it is biocompatible, there is no need for donor site or secondary surgical procedure there by reducing post-harvesting morbidity and patient discomfort. In this case report VISTA technique in combination with collagen membrane was found to be a reliable treatment method for multiple gingival recession defects.
