Abstract

In Indonesia, periodontal plastic surgery to cover exposed root is still uncommon, most of the cases were treated with filling. The surgical treatment is an alternative to obtain aesthetic, diminish dentinal hypersensitivity and allow better conditions of dental hygiene performance. Smoking often categorized as contraindication for periodontal plastic surgeries due to their influence of the healing and outcomes. This report proposed to present root coverage treatment case on male 25 years old, and heavy smoker patient, with Miller's Class I. Coronally advanced flap and subepithelial connective tissue graft were chosen because of their ability to provide double blood supply on affected area. Recession height, width, probing depth, clinical attachment level (CAL), and height of the attached gingiva (HAG) were measured prior and after surgery.
