Introduction: The purpose of this study was to investigate the amount of denuded root coverage using subepithelial connective tissue graft. Materials and Methods: 12 patients (8 female and 4 male) between 22 and 43 years old with at least one tooth with gingival recession were selected. The following parameters were measured for each tooth: 1.Gingival level to CEJ height. 2.Gingival level to the reference point height 3. Recession width in CEJ. 4. pocket depth 5.The amount of keratinized gingiva. Gingival graft surgery was done with the Langer & Langer technique. The parameters were measured at baseline and one, two and three months after surgery. Statistical analysis was performed using ANOVA and correlation coefficient. Results: The results revealed that our procedure was successful in 75 of cases in root coverage of greater than.1.7 mm and in about 92 of cases in increasing the width of keratinized gingiva more than 2 mm. Conclusion: Subepthelial connective tissue graft procedure could be used successfully in treating denuded roots.
