Gum Grafting (for Recession)

Smile Gallery

Gum grafting corrects gum recession by removing healthy gum tissue from the roof of the mouth and using it to build the bum back up where it has receded. Gum recession is usually a slow process that happens over time where the gum tissue wears away and exposes the tooth at the root. This exposure can cause increased sensitivity, especially when eating or drinking hot or cold beverages. And, if left untreated gum recession can eventually lead to tooth loss.
