Management of Single Tooth Recession by Free Gingival Graft - A Case Report

Richa Verma [4] | Himani Kaushik | Ridhima Singhal [3]

Abstract: Gingival recession is the exposure of root surfaces due to apical migration of the gingival margins beyond the cementoenamel junction. Insufficient gingival thickness and inadequate width of attached gingiva are the most common reasons for progressive gingival recession. It can lead to sensitivity in the area of recession and complicates the maintenance of oral hygiene. Various periodontal plastic surgical procedures can be performed to treat this condition. This case report presents a case report of a 43 - year - old female with class 3 gingival recession (Miller's Classification) successfully treated with free gingival graft.
