Aim and Objective: The aim of the present study is to evaluate the predictability, reliability and the percentage of root coverage by Modified Semilunar Coronally Advanced Flap for treatment of multiple adjacent teeth with recession. Materials and Methods: 16 patients with 32 Miller class I/ II defects were selected. Each patient was treated using modified semilunar coronally advanced flap. Plaque index, Recession height, Recession width, Width of keratinized tissue was recorded pre and post operatively at 7, 30, 60 and 90 days. Paired T test was used to analyze the results. Results: In the present study mean root coverage achieved on 7, 30, 60 and 90 days were 91.67 + 15.70%, 90.98+15.01%, 94.61+11.05% and95.13+10.90 % respectively. 100% coverage was seen in 26 cases at the end of study. Conclusion: Modified semilunar coronally advanced flap was effective and predictable to produce root coverage at multiple gingival recessions. This technique also has found to help gain in width of keratinized tissue.
