Your gums do more than just frame your smile—they protect your tooth roots and help hold your teeth firmly in place. Gum recession occurs when the gum pulls away from the teeth due to disease, bacteria or improper oral care, and exposes your sensitive tooth roots to potential damage and even tooth loss. As gum tissue does not grow back naturally when affected by gum recession, professional gum grafting treatment is needed to restore your smile. As a periodontal specialty practice, we have the education, experience and attention to detail to return your beautiful smile and keep your teeth safeguarded with gum grafting.
When it comes to performing gum grafting treatment, choosing the experts will result in the most effective and aesthetic results for your smile. Our periodontists were academically trained at the prestigious Eastman Dental Center and board-certified by the American Board of Periodontology to offer the best results for gum recession treatment. We always follow proven, academic-based treatment plans and with a combined experience of nearly 60 years, we have the experience to handle even the most extreme gum recession cases.
When performing gum grafting treatment for cases of gum recession, we will cover your exposed tooth roots with graft material taken from you (typically the roof of the mouth) or a donor source. This graft material is then carefully sutured over the site of gum recession to protect the tooth roots and restore balance to the gum line. After a brief healing period, the gum tissue will blend seamlessly within your smile. For those with dental anxiety, we offer relaxing sedation dentistry to make your gum recession procedure pain- and worry-free.
