So far there is no universal solution regarding treatment of gingival recession. The author proposes his own version of updating one of the methods of treating gingival recession, namely a laterally moved flap with the addition of enamel matrix proteins. In the author’s opinion, this method is the least invasive and there are the least contraindications to it.

Key words: gingival recession, laterally moved flap, Straumann Emdogain gel.
