Gingival recession poses a multitude of problems like root sensitivity, plaque accumulation, root caries and other functional problems. Treatment options range depending on the type of recession to the condition of mucogingival tissues. Connective tissue graft in combination with coronally advanced flap has been described as a gold standard in treatment of gingival recession. This case report describes a case of absolute root coverage achieved with epithelialized graft (which was subsequently de-epithelialized) when combined with coronally advanced flap for a case of gingival recession in a Mandibular molar.
