Gum recession causes root exposure. This poses two problems. One is an aesthetic problem causing te teeth to appear longer. Exposed root surfaces also cause tooth sensitivity.
In order to cover these exposed roots, we can perform soft tissue graft procedures.
During this procedure, we will remove gum tissue from your palate or another donor source to cover the exposed root. This can be done for one tooth or several teeth to even your gum line and reduce sensitivity.
Our goal is to help every patient experience the benefits of good oral health and a beautiful smile. We value the trust you have placed in our office and strive to provide solutions that meet your periodontal needs and expectations of care.
