ABSTRACT
A definition of the term "recession" is presented. It refers to the withdrawal of a body part from its normal position. One type of repression is gingival repression, in which there is an apical migration of the gingiva. This is caused due to faulty tooth-brushing technique, friction from soft tissues, and gingival inflammation.
