Lateral Pedicle Flap for Isolated Gingival Recession: A Case Report

Hiba Peku | Sachit Anand Arora | Gunjan Gupta [3] | Kumar Saurav


Abstract: Gingival recession or marginal tissue recession is defined as the location of the marginal tissue apical to the cement - enamel junction (CEJ) with exposure of the root surface. It is also one of the most common estheticconcern associated with periodontal tissues. Management of gingival recession and its sequelae is based on thorough assessment of the etiological agent and the extent of the involvement of the marginal tissues. A number of mucogingival surgeries have been used to treat the gingival recession aiming primarily to prevent further root exposure and to increase the width of keratinized tissue. The lateral displaced pedicle flap described by Grupe and Warren in 1956 is one of the mucogingival surgery indicated for localized gingival recession. Thus this case report put an emphasis on lateral pedicle flap for the root coverage in relation to localized mandibular right central incisor.
