Background & Aim: Application of various root conditioning agents to root surfaces during surgical therapy is in controversy to increase amount of root coverage. The purpose of this controlled study was to determine the clinical effects of topical application of doxycycline solution in root conditioning as an adjunet to the semilunar coronally repositioned flap for root coverage.

Method and Materials: 24 Miller Cl I gingival recessions in 7 patients, were treated with semilunar coronally repositioned flap procedure. 12 recession in test group recieved doxycycline solution for 5 minutes the remaining did not receive any root conditioning agent. Measurments assessed at baseline, I and 3 months follow up.

Results: The mean percentage of root coverage was 71% corresponding to a mean percentage of 79% and 63% for the test group and the control group, respectively. A significant difference in the clinical measurements (root coverage, clinical attachment level, width of keratinized gingiva) was found within groups (P<0.05), while these differences were not found to be significant between two groups. The mean of probing depth did not change significantly. The sensitivity to a stream of air decreased in both groups but this change was not statistically significant. The mean width of recession reduced which eas statistically significant (P<0.05).

Conclusion: The results confirmed that application of doxycycline as an adjunet to this technique in root coverage was not effective.
