Gingival recession is a very common periodontal defect where gingiva moves apically and results in the exposure of root surface causing hypersensitivity, root caries that further leads to shallow vestibule and narrowing the amount of attached gingiva. Various surgical techniques are performed multiple times to get predictable results. In order to avoid patients' discomfort and number of invasive procedures, an intense need for an autograft is required, which has an adequate vascular supply and can be obtained from the same surgical site. Hence, we presented a case series where periosteal pedicle graft is used in treating Miller's class I and II single and multiple recession defects and its effectiveness over a 6-month period.
