Gum Recession


What is gum recession? 

When the gums recede, the root gets exposed. This leads to teeth that look longer than what they really are (looking “long in the tooth”). This is called “gum recession” and it’s considered irreversible damage.

Gum grafting is the solution for many of the gum recession situations. Gum recession is highly influenced by teeth grinding and how you take care of your teeth. Our doctors will diagnose the problem and offer the grafting procedure that is the most appropriate for your situation. Our doctors are versed in all types of grafting. We are specialized in a technique where we can graft many teeth (a full arch and a full mouth) without using the roof of the mouth but rather using donor tissue. This technique is very comfortable with minimal side effects.

Gum Recession Symptoms and Solutions

When the gums recede, the teeth look long. Exposed roots also make the teeth more sensitive to hot and cold beverages  Later on, exposed root surfaces are more prone to dental decay.
