Gum Recession Treatment
Soft-Tissue Grafting to Restore Healthy Gum Lines
Gum recession can occur as a result of gum disease, overzealous brushing, certain medications and certain medical conditions. In some cases, gum recession occurs so slowly that patients may not be aware of it until they experience tooth sensitivity or notice that their teeth appear longer than normal.
Gum recession is not only unattractive, it can also put you at risk for gum disease or root decay. Depending upon the severity of gum recession, gum grafting treatment may be recommended to restore oral health.
Soft-tissue grafting, or gum grafting treatment, is often recommended to patients who have gum recession severe enough to cause tooth sensitivity or an unattractive smile line.
