Treatment of Gum Recession

Periodontics can often be used to make your front teeth look better

Gingival recession is a problem which effects millions of Americans. It may be caused by toothbrush abrasion, periodontal disease or simply as a product of aging. When gingival recession occurs the teeth appear longer, the root surface is exposed and generalized sensitivity of the teeth occurs. These problems can all be addressed by the use of gingival grafting. This is a procedure where we can literally move the gum to a position that covers more of the tooth structure. This can also be accomplished by using graft tissue – either an autograft from the patient’s palate or a synthetic graft to cover the exposed tooth surfaces. Any type of this procedure will alleviate the sensitivity and will allow for an outstanding aesthetic result.
