Gum recession treatment

Reset Decrease Increase
A symmetrical gum line contributes to an attractive looking smile.

Healthy gums form a tight seal around your teeth, to protect your teeth and bones from the entry of harmful bacteria. However, over time, the gums may begin to recede for a variety of reasons.

This recession is commonly associated with both bone loss and tissue loss.

This can significantly expose a tooth root, creating an uneven gum line. The tooth may also appear to be longer than the neighboring teeth and ma become the focal point of attention.

More importantly, the exposed root surfaces places the tooth at an increased risk for tooth sensitivity, daily pain and discomfort.

An exposed root also leaves the root susceptible to decay and periodontal disease which can lead to infection and premature tooth loss.

These potential consequences can be avoided by a grafting treatment that is performed to cover the exposed root.

This tissue graft may be performed utilizing your own tissue or with specialized donor tissue.

With special care and attention, the exposed root is then covered and the graft is secured in place to allow proper healing.

Root coverage procedures will protect your teeth and greatly enhance your smile.
