Cross-linked hyaluronic acid (xHyA) has recently been introduced in reconstructive periodontal soft tissue surgery due to its biologic properties which favor periodontal wound healing and regeneration. Data from preclinical studies have shown that xHyA significantly increases the tensile strength of granulation tissue, stimulates blood clot formation, induces angiogenesis, and enhances wound healing properties of cell types involved in soft tissue wound healing. Recent clinical data also suggest that the use of xHyA either alone or in conjunction with autogenous soft tissue grafts may lead to excellent root coverage of single and multiple recession gingival recessions, which histologically may be accompanied by periodontal regeneration (i.e. formation of root cementum, periodontal ligament and alveolar bone).
