If you see a few of your teeth have started to look longer or you frequently experience sensitivity to hot and cold, your gums could be receding, and a portion of your tooth's root is exposed. Gum recession occurs gradually, and it may sneak up on you. Gum grafting treatment for receding gums can help prevent any further loss of gum tissue.
Exposed roots of teeth in the esthetic (smile) zone are very unappealing. Gum recession can leave you at risk of developing a cavity on tooth root. Gum recession may lead to progressive bone loss, eventually resulting in tooth loss.
We utilize the most current, conservative techniques for gingival grafting including utilization of allografts, meaning the grafted tissue does not need to be taken from your own mouth.
