Why are my gums receding?
There are a variety of reasons why your gums recede, but the most common reason is abnormal tooth position, brushing to hard with your toothbrush, and having thin delicate gums.
How will you fix my receding gums?
A relatively easy procedure called a connective tissue graft or alloderm graft can be done and typically completed in one hour.
What are the benefits of gum grafting?
First, gum grafting is crucial to improved gum health if you are suffering from receding gums. This will assist in stopping bone and tissue loss (saving you from the need for a future bone graft), often taking place in combination with a deep cleaning.
Second, you’ll save yourself pain from exposed roots, allowing you to have a comfortable, pain-free smile. You can finally enjoy your favorite hot and cold foods and drinks again!
Finally, your smile will look great! With receding gums often making teeth appear uneven, soft tissue grafting can even your gumline for a beautiful, confident smile.
How long do the results last?
In most cases, results are permanent.
