The recession of the gingival mean apical migration of gingival tissue which may lead dental hypersensitivity, poor esthetic, more plaque accumulation and finally in later stage tooth loss. Gingival recession has multiple etiological factor like gingivitis, chronic trauma, frenal pull, tobacco chewing, acute traumatic injuries and psychological factors. Best way of curing gingival recession is proper treatment with early detection. In present case report we treat a patient with Millar class ii recession. The correction of Class I and II gingival recessions are presented as a means of minimizing surgical trauma and achieving predictable aesthetic results. Miller’s Classes I, in which the etiological factors are well diagnosed and show great predictability of total coverage when the technique of subepithelial connective tissue graft is used. This technique success has been mainly attributed to the double blood supply for graft’s nutrition, originating from the connective tissue of both the periosteum and flap. Miller’s Class I recession was treated by the surgical technique of subepithelial connective tissue graft, obtaining total coverage, eliminating the aesthetic deficiency and the dentin hypersensitivity complained by patient.

Abstract


The recession of the gingival mean apical migration of gingival tissue which may lead dental hypersensitivity, poor esthetic, more plaque accumulation and finally in later stage tooth loss. Gingival recession has multiple etiological factor like gingivitis, chronic trauma, frenal pull, tobacco chewing, acute traumatic injuries and psychological factors. Best way of curing gingival recession is proper treatment with early detection. In present case report we treat a patient with Millar class ii recession. The correction of Class I and II gingival recessions are presented as a means of minimizing surgical trauma and achieving predictable aesthetic results. Miller’s Classes I, in which the etiological factors are well diagnosed and show great predictability of total coverage when the technique of subepithelial connective tissue graft is used. This technique success has been mainly attributed to the double blood supply for graft’s nutrition, originating from the connective tissue of both the periosteum and flap. Miller’s Class I recession was treated by the surgical technique of subepithelial connective tissue graft, obtaining total coverage, eliminating the aesthetic deficiency and the dentin hypersensitivity complained by patient.
