Root coverage is achieved by many procedures like free gingival autografts, connective tissue grafts and pedicle grafts. Several studies state that root coverage using connective tissue grafts have high success rates but have disadvantages like creation of second surgical site and post-operative color harmony is less. Although Cohen and Ross reported more than 85% success in covering denuded roots, the degree of success varies among other clinicians. The double papilla pedicle graft has limited usefulness. The double papillae pedicle graft is most appropriate in those cases where esthetics demand a close tissue color match and where the papillae are large and have shallow gingival grooves.
