Gingival recession is the exposure of root surfaces due to apical migration of the gingival tissue margins. Therefore this deformity should be treated at its earliest detection. Gingival recession is an esthetical problem lead to pain or hypersensitivity, retention of plaque hence inflamed gingiva, root caries, abrasion and fear of tooth loss. Gingival recession can be managed by surgical or non-surgical approaches. Nonsurgical approaches include-restorations, crowns, veneers and gingival masks whereas surgical management includes various techniques of increasing the width of keratinized tissue such as frenectomy in case of high frenal attachment & root coverage procedures. Lateral pedicle graft (LPG), is a technique where graft is elevated from donor site which remains attached at its base for nourishment and is transferred to adjacent site in isolated denuded root.
