Gum Recession Treatment
Protect Your Teeth From Gum Recession
Gum recession is a condition in which the gum line begins to recede away from the crowns of the teeth, exposing the sensitive tooth roots to potential damage and decay. Gum recession can occur for a variety of reasons, including oral trauma, gum disease, genetics, age, and overly aggressive brushing and flossing. Your gums protect your teeth and help hold them firmly in place. When they begin to recede, this protection and stability is lost. We offer effective and time-tested gum grafting treatment to restore your gum health and help protect your smile.
Symptoms of Gum Recession
- Sensitivity to hot or cold beverages
- Teeth appearing elongated
- Discoloration near the gum line
- Spaces forming between teeth
Gum Grafting Process
We offer traditional and highly effective gum grafting services to help treat gum recession. We have years of experience with gum grafting procedures and our techniques have been proven to be effective at restoring the gums and returning beauty and health back to your smile. The process involves taking tissue from the roof of your mouth or from a donor source and attaching it to the site of recession. We use small sutures to hold the graft in place while it heals over several weeks. After healing, the graft will look seamless on your smile and protect your teeth once again.
