Treatment for receding gums is always a challenging task for a periodontist. To fulfill this, many surgical techniques such as free gingival grafts, connective tissue grafts, pedicle flaps, and lateral sliding flaps have been used. For better prevention of relapse of these procedures and to improve the gingival biotype, various biomaterials such as platelet-rich fibrin, collagen matrix, and amnion chorion membranes have been additionally utilized. Due to advancements in preparation of platelet concentrates titanium platelet-rich fibrin, a third-generation platelet concentrate was introduced. Unlike other biomaterials, it has thicker fibrin meshwork with greater cellular entrapment and thicker membrane. Present case reports depict the usage of titanium platelet-rich fibrin as a biomaterial along with coronally advanced flap in the treatment of millers Class-I gingival recessions. Patients were followed up to 6 months after performing recession coverage treatments.
