Background: Most commonly palatal region is used as the donor site for obtaining connective tissue graft for root coverage as it has the advantage of providing a wide area for obtaining the graft. In the cases requiring small size of graft other intraoral regions can also be used. This is a case report which demonstrates the use of interdental papilla for obtaining connective tissue for root coverage in single teeth in the lower anterior region. Methods: The technique involved creating an envelope in the tissue around the denuded root surface and placing the connective tissue graft taken from the interdental papilla over the recession defect.Result: Clinically significant amount of root coverage was obtained. Conclusion: Root coverage of a shallow narrow recession defect can be obtained with free rotated papilla autograft using envelop technique.
