Gingival recession (GR) is a mucogingival defect referred to the buccal exposure of the root surface of the tooth as a consequence of an apical shift of the gingival margin up to the cementoenamel junction (1). With 40.98 % to 89% prevalence in different populations. With higher frequency in individuals over 65 (2). many risk factors can play role in increasing the incidence and progression of GR such as aging, smoking, periodontal diseases, poor oral Hygiene, systemic diseases, and other anatomical Factors (3). Teeth sensitivity, root caries, and aesthetic problems are the most symptoms of GR. Many modalities of treatment had been invented to re-establish the lost clinical attachment loss and restore the aesthetic appearance of the gingival tissues. including surgical and nonsurgical approaches. ViSTA tunneling technique have proved to achieve the desired complete root coverage that the Periodontist and the Patient will to achieve. This surgical approach is Vestibular Incision Subperiosteal Tunnel Access (4), is a minimally invasive surgical technique used for soft tissue augmentation around teeth and implants, and for the treatment of multiple gingival recessions. During this workshop, we will discuss the definition, classification and diagnosis of GR. In addition will discuss the main surgical treatment modalities in addition to the illustration and hands-on training on sheep jaw on how to perform VISTA technique
