Gum grafting is a common solution to reverse gum recession, improve the appearance of a “toothy” smile, and provide a firm foundation for dental implants.
Receding gums can be caused by aggressive brushing, advanced gum disease, and factors beyond your control, such as genetics and the natural aging progress. A gum graft restores gum lines to the proper length for maximum health and beauty. If you feel like too much tooth surface shows when you smile, or if you’re considering dental implants to replace missing teeth, a gum graft can improve your smile’s appearance and function and prepare your mouth for replacement teeth.
Additionally, gum grafts provide:
- A barrier against decay
- Coverage of exposed tooth roots
- Improved oral health
- Reduction of bone loss
- Increased dental implant success
A gum graft can be performed by a surgeon with the advanced tools and techniques needed to perform the surgery. To perform a gum graft, you can choose to use your own tissue or donor tissue from a trusted source. And of course, a safe, soothing sedation is available to increase your comfort and instill a sense of calm during your procedure.
You deserve advanced dentistry performed with precision and care.
