Material and methods: A systematic literature review was performed of randomized control trials in English identified in MEDLINE (PubMed), Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Trials (Cochrane Library), Springer Link, Science Direct and Google Scholar databases, published between 2015 and 2020. Studies had to be performed in vivo with follow-up periods of ≥6 months.
Results: 153 publications were found, out of which 8 were identified as relevant to the theme. Six of these studies evaluated periodontal parameters such as probing depth (PD), clinical attachment level (CAL), recession depth (RD), keratinized tissue width (KTW) and gingival thickness (GT). In 3 studies discomfort and aesthetic scores were analyzed as subjective parameters. 1 study histologically evaluated different techniques of gingival recession treatment.
