Root Coverage With a Connective tissue Graft for a Buccally Displaced Mandibular Central Incisor

The ideal treatment for our patient would have been orthodontics to properly align her crowded incisor teeth. She declined to “wear braces” but wanted to prevent further loss of gum tissue and root sensitivity of her lower central incisor. Achieving root coverage when a tooth is out of position is difficult, so we were very gratified to achieve an ideal result with a tunneling connective tissue graft.
