Obtaining predictable root coverage has become an important part of periodontal therapy. Various GTR techniques are explored for treating a gingival recession defect. Since soft tissue follows the contour of the hard tissue, sticky bone can be a useful tool to obtain better root coverage results, maintain space, and act as a scaffold between soft tissue and root surface. Methods: In this case series, 2 cases were approached with VISTA technique for coverage of multiple Miller’s class I defects. Sticky bone (i-prf and DMBM) was introduced into the defect area to act as a scaffold and maintain space. Results: Clinically significant amount of root coverage was obtained in both cases. 91 percent of root coverage was obtained with the first case whereas 78 percent of coverage was seen with the second case. Conclusion: Results from these case reports indicate that the introduction of sticky bone into recession defects helps in getting tangible results.
