Background: Denuded root surface may give rise to dentin hypersensitivity, deterioration in the esthetic appearance, and inability to perform proper oral hygiene procedure. Hence, various surgical procedures have been proposed to overcome the problem of gingival recession. Hence, the aim of the study was to perform recession coverage procedures and thereafter to compare the height, width, and thickness of the interdental papilla postoperatively. Materials and Methods: Thirty patients were selected with Miller's Class I/Class II localized gingival recession in the maxillary or mandibular anterior region (age 20–50 years) with the presence of buccal gingival recession (≥2 mm). The baseline measurements of height, width, and thickness of the interdental papilla were measured with a standardized vernier caliper, and width of keratinized gingiva, probing pocket depth, and clinical attachment level were measured with a UNC 15 probe. Mucogingival surgical procedures were performed and evaluated postoperatively up to 6 months. Results: The amount of root coverage was significantly correlated with the interdental papilla. Conclusion: This study indicates that the various recession coverage procedures did not affect the papilla dimension however, recession coverage was seen with lower height of the interdental papilla.
