There are several counter-measures to those gingival recessions that take place at anterior peri-implant restoration sites. The causes of the defect will be discussed followed by the classification of the peri-implant gingival recessions together with relevant clinical cases and treatment methods for respective prognosis. Also, this treatment method will vary between single and multiple implant restorations. Dr. Suzuki will share his clinical cases and respective treatment methods divided into cases of both single and multiple implant restorations.

Upon completion of this presentation, participants should be able to: 1) describe the multiple causes of gingival recessions in peri-implants; 2) discuss the efficacy of applying CTG in peri-implant gingival recessions; and 3) explain the three major counter-measures of peri-implant gingival recessions and their respective usages.
