Healthy Gum tissue protects your teeth from periodontal disease and sensitivity while giving you a great smile. Routine dental check-ups along with proper brushing are essential for maintaining healthy gums but some patients may require treatment.
Why Treat Gum Recession??
Aggressive tooth brushing and periodontal disease are two primary causes for recession and can lead to the following:
- Unattractive smile
- Root sensitivity
- Loss of supporting bone
- Tooth decay
- Plaque build-up
- Risk of future recession
- Tooth mobility
What are the benefits of Gum Graft Surgery?
A gum graft can reduce further recession and bone loss. In some cases, it can cover exposed roots to protect them from decay. This may reduce tooth sensitivity and improve aesthetics of your smile. Whether you have a gum graft to improve function or aesthetics, patients often receive the benefits of both: a beautiful new smile and improved periodontal health – your keys to smiling, eating and speaking with comfort and confidence.
