Six patients with buccal gingival recession (4 to 6 mm) were treated by means of the guided tissue regeneration technique utilizing a polyglycolactic membrane (Vicryl).

Complete root coverage was obtained in four out of six patients; 0.5 and 1.5 mm of recession were still present in the remaining two.
