The most important etiologic factors of gingival recession
are the presence of supraand sub-gingival calculus, inadequate width of keratinized tissue, and faulty tooth brushing techniques.5

There was a statistically significant difference between the groups represented by a larger extension of neoformed cementum (GTR = 32.72%; CPF = 18.82%; p = 0.0004), new bone (GTR = 23.20%; CPF = 9.90%; p = 0.0401) and a smaller extension of residual gingival recession
in the test group (GTR = 50.69%) when compared to the control group (CPF = 59.73%), with p = 0.0055 (Table 1).
