Abstract :

Gingival recession is a common incidence and its occurrence will increase with age. It can lead to clinical problems, reduced cosmetic appeal and therefore esthetic concern. There are numerous strategies for root coverage. The preference for improved esthetics has elevated distinctly over the years. The idea of minimal invasive approach has received significance within the latest years and is changing the open surgical approaches. The treatment of gingival recession has continually been technique sensitive along with the related patient morbidity due to the invasive nature. This article presents a report of a case treated with a minimally invasive modified tunnel approach.
