Gum Grafting

Aggressive tooth brushing, trauma or periodontal disease can lead to gum recession, which ultimately results in exposed tooth roots. When tooth roots are exposed, teeth appear too long and can become sensitive to hot and cold liquids and foods. Also, the exposed roots are in danger of decay. Soft tissue grafts are available to repair this problem as well as prevent further recession, bone loss or decay. The procedure covers the roots and reinforces the gum tissue where excessive gum recession is present. Gum tissue is taken from your palate (roof of the mouth) to cover the exposed root, thus, evening your gum line and reducing sensitivity levels.
