Gingival recession is defined as the apical migration of the gingival margin with exposure of root surfaces. The etiology of the condition is multifactorial. Given the high rate of gingival recession defects among the general population, it is imperative that dental practitioners have an understanding of the etiology, complications and management of the condition. A recent innovation in dentistry is the preparation and use of platelet-rich fibrin (PRF) for recession defects. The article presents a case report, which highlights the use of lateral sliding bridge flap along with PRF in a collagen membrane carrier (guided tissue regeneration) for the treatment of multiple recession defects.
