When esthetic demands of the patient require accentuated precision in surgical technique, incorporation of advanced surgical aids in general clinical practice becomes a necessity. Periodontal plastic surgical procedures have been reviewed in the dental literature and assessed for their validity so as to provide the practitioner with the knowledge required in making patient-centered, evidence-based decisions with respect to the treatment of gingival recession. Connective tissue grafts is considered the gold standard for root coverage procedures due to statistically significantly superior results compared to other procedures. However, the coverage of multiple tooth recessions and patient morbidity due to the need of larger second surgical wound at the donor site in the gingival recession reduction are the major shortcomings. A case report of multiple roots recession treated using a modified connective tissue grafting procedure, the free rotated papilla autograft using periodontal microsurgery has been presented here. The advantages are the use of a single surgical site, avoiding any palatal patient discomfort, good color compatibility with adjacent tissue and healing by primary intension.
