The displacement of the gingival margin below the level of Cementoenamel Junction (CEJ) is referred to as gingival recession. The main indication to treat isolated gingival recession is to increase soft tissue thickness and stability to facilitate plaque control, improve the patient aesthetics and prevent further periodontal breakdown. Though various root coverage techniques are available with numerous regenerative materials, autologous material such as Advanced Plasma Rich Fibrin (A-PRF) along with latest approach by Laterally Closed Tunnel (LCT) technique has been used in present case report as a predictable approach for the treatment of isolated gingival recessions.
