Isolated gingival recession may occur in as many as 30 per cent of adolescents, and lead to problems of dentine hypersensitivity, root caries, and gingival inflammation in adult life. This review discusses the prevalence and aetiology of isolated recession, with particular reference to the implications for orthodontic treatment. Consideration is also given to the differing philosophies for management.
