Periodontal plastic surgeries have gained popularity in recent years and tremendous advancements and documentations have been published using various allogeneic materials , allogeneic grafts, and guided tissue regeneration. This study aims to find out the frequency of the techniques used for the recession coverage procedure in private dental college, chennai. This was a single university based study where retrospective analysis was carried out using data collected from digital patient data recording software.
