Abstract: Gingival recession is defined as ?Displacement of soft tissue margin apical to the cemento-enamel junction?. Gingival recessions require treatment for many reasons ? impaired aesthetic appearance, root sensitivity, cervical caries or abrasion. Presence of gingival recession and gingival inflammation in areas with a lack or narrow band of attached gingiva is identified as a mucogingival problem. Periodontal plastic surgery procedures are performed to resolve these mucogingival problems. This case report presents a case report of a 30 year old female with class I gingival recession (Miller's Classification) successfully treated with complete root coverage by free gingival autograft.
