Gingival recession is a very often clinic complaint which frecuently cause esthetic problems to our patients or do not aIlow them keeping a good plaque control in these areas which can lead to sensibility or even decay.  For their treatment, some techniques of mucogingival surgery have been designed, being the connective tissue free graft, so far, one that offers bigger percentage of success as weIl as greater predictibility. Although have been described some ways to graft the connective tissue to the recipient bed, we wiIl focus our work on the technique described by Langer and Langer in 1985 which, in spite of suffering several changes proposed by different authors, it is still the fundamental basis in the use of this kind of grafts. We show results after five years post surgery.

Keywords : Recession; mucogingival surgery; soft tissue grafts.
