Abstract: Gingival Recession has been defined as apical migration of the gingival tissue resulting in exposure of the root surface which in turn could be responsible for root caries, root sensitivity and compromised esthetics. Treatment of gingival recession has been one of the core areas of practice in periodontics for either increasing the zone of keratinized tissue to root coverage. Through the years, the treatment ranged from the use of gingival flaps, autografts, xenografts and acellular dermal allografts. The benefits of the procedures aim towards improving esthetics and eliminating exposed dentin hypersensitivity. Gingival Allografts are acellular dermal matrix that has shown promising results in root coverage and increase in the zone of keratinized tissue.
