Restore Your Gums

Treating gum recession reduces sensitivity and improves appearance.

Don’t Live With Gum Recession

Teeth with receding gums can be difficult to identify. Many patients notice that they have sensitive teeth when they experience increased tooth sensitivity to extreme temperatures or observe that some of their teeth look longer than others.

Significant gum recession results in exposed roots of teeth, leading to tooth sensitivity, gum disease, or even tooth loss. The good news is that our team helps patients prevent and reverse the effects of receding gums through gum grafting.

Our doctors can use either soft-tissue grafts from your palate or a highly specialized gum-grafting material to cover the exposed roots of teeth as well as thicken the gum tissue. Gum grafting can be done for one tooth or several teeth, reducing tooth sensitivity and preventing future gum recession.

What are the Benefits of Gum Grafting?

Gum recession can be caused by a number of factors, including gum disease, genetics, trauma, or tooth grinding and clenching. No matter the cause, gum grafting can offer several benefits:
  • Covers and protects tooth roots from decay or damage
  • Reduces tooth sensitivity
  • Improves esthetic appearance
  • Reduces areas for food and plaque to become trapped
