Gingival recession is the apical shift of the marginal gingiva from its normal position on the crown of the tooth to levels on the root surface beyond the cemento-enamel junction.It is a widespread clinical finding in adults with more than 50% of the population having one or additional sites with gingival recession of 1mm or more and its severity increases with age. Root surfaces exposure in oral environment can cause root hypersensitivity, root caries and create esthetic problems. The pedicle graft is simple and less time-consuming surgical procedure with excellent results, without involving second surgical site for donor harvesting. In this case report the Miller’s Class-II isolated gingival recession defect was treated with lateral pedicle graft and postoperative clinical outcome showed stable & significant root coverage.
