Gingival recession associated with dentinal hypersensitivity is one of the commonest issues addressed by the periodontist. The treatment choice for these cases should address biological as well as patient chief complaint. Coronally advanced flaps for root coverage are the most commonly used technique for multiple teeth recessions. This case report describes a case of Class I gingival recession due to faulty brushing technique associate with dentinal hy-persensitivity treated with Zucchelli's modification of conventional coronally advanced flap with GTR membrane.
