Treating Gum Recession with a Gum Graft
If you have significant gum recession after gum disease, or notice that your teeth are starting to pull away from the root for any reason, you may need to undergo a gum grafting procedure to enhance your smile. Receding gums are often a side effect of gum disease and should be repaired. Dr. Jason Souyias can restore the gum line with a simple gum graft/soft tissue graft procedure.
Signs You May Need a Gum Graft
You may be a good candidate for a gum grafting procedure if you notice significant inflammation of the gum tissue or have very sensitive teeth because of excessive root exposure. Some patients may have cavities that have formed around the gum line when the gums start to recede, or notice that their smile has changed because of a receding gum line. Undergoing a gum graft or gum lift can offer both functional and esthetic benefits.
Preserve Your Smile with a Gum Grafting Procedure
Since your gums act as a shield between your teeth and the environment, you must take care of any gum recession issues as soon as you notice them. Protect your oral health and improve your smile with a gum graft that can restore your gum line. We may perform connective tissue grafts, free gingival grafts, or pedicle grafts. Cosmetic crown lengthening can be very effective for restoring or reshaping the gum line to create a more attractive smile. If your teeth look un-naturally short, we can remove excess gum tissue to improve the aesthetics of your smile.
