Some individuals may not have sufficient gum tissue around their teeth or receding gums, perhaps caused by brushing too hard. This can wear away the gums, expose the roots, and result in sensitive teeth vulnerable to decay. In this case, we perform a gum graft to augment those zones to increase the gum tissue already naturally attached.
Receding gums is a gradual and common dental condition, affecting 4% to 12% of adults.
- Thorough examination of the receding gum tissue.
- Use of the patient's own gum tissue from a different location or use of human donor tissue to attach to the area of recession.
- Home care instructions during the healing process and to prevent gum infection.
