Abstract

Recession of the gingival margin is still a common problem, with negative consequences for both aesthetics and periodontal health. Complete root coverage of gingival recession defects with periodontal plastic surgery is a necessity in this era where aesthetics are a top priority. Correction of mucogingival recession deformities has been described using a variety of periodontal plastic surgical procedures, each with varying degrees of success. The goal of this case report is to describe how a semilunar coronally advanced flap was modified to treat gingival recession in the maxillary anterior tooth.
