Treatment of gingival recession is a prime concern due to an increase in hypersensitivity and high esthetic demands. There are various proposed treatment options for treating this mucogingival defect. Treating Miller's Class III recession is definitely a true challenge for the periodontists. Defects adjacent to the edentulous region, present with additional difficulty due to collapse of ridge postextraction, leading to the gingival defect. Here is a case report, presenting Class III recession defect adjacent to the edentulous site of the lower left second premolar, which was treated with the help of lateral pedicle flap obtained from the adjacent edentulous area along with subepithelial connective tissue graft, a bilaminar technique.
