Abstract

Gingival recession, whenever presents with sensitivity, aesthetic problem, root caries or difficulty in plaque control may pose a challenge for clinicians. Among the various treatment modalities for root coverage, laterally displaced flap has been a promising treatment for isolated gingival recession with an adequate amount of donor tissue adjacent to the recipient site. This case report presents a case of successful root coverage where laterally displaced flap was employed for the management of gingival recession in mandibular central incisor with two and a half years follow up.
