Gingival recession is defined as apical displacement of the gingival margin from the cementoenamel junction with oral exposure of the root surface. Different surgical procedures and flap designs have been proposed for the treatment of gingival recession in the mandibular anterior region. Presents and describes three surgical techniques using subepithelial connective tissue graft (SCTG) and free gingival graft (FGG) in order to solve recessions produced mandibular incisors. The first surgical procedure was carried out using the technique described by holbrook and Ochsenbein, the second of which was addressed by modified Edlan-Mejchar technique and the third by a laterally positioned flap. Conclusion: Both the use of SCTG as the FGG are a valuable component in mucogingival surgery, and contribute to solving unsightly and functionally problematic situations.
