Kaushal Luthra, Nidhi Aggarwal


Anticipation of root coverage procedures has been exigent, due to the multi-factorial etiology of recession defects, its classification, technique used and the amount of bone present to support the soft tissue. The aim of this case report is to propose a new, predictable root coverage strategy that involves a trio-incision design. The paper report the management progressive class IV recession defect associated with shallow vestibule in the presence of advancing periodontal bone loss, with Trio- Incision Strategy i.e., firstly vestibular releasing incision, secondly periosteal releasing incision and thirdly sulcular incision
