The Effects of Gum Recession on Your Smile

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.

Practical, Effective Gum Recession Care

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.
