Have you noticed your gum tissue starting to recede when you look in the mirror? Receding gums are a common concern among adults. Gum recession has multiple causes, including aggressive tooth brushing, periodontal disease, or sometimes ill-fitting dentures. When left untreated, gum tissue can recede enough to expose the roots of your teeth. If you’ve noticed your gums receding, you may be looking for a solution to fix this dental issue. At Comprehensive Dental Care, we offer Gum Grafting as a treatment option for gum recession.
What is Gum Grafting?
There are three types of grafts:
- Connective Tissue Grafts: These grafts transplant a flap of skin from the roof of your mouth to cover exposed tooth roots.
- Free Gingival Grafts: This treatment also takes tissue from the roof of your mouth but is a better option for those who have thin gum tissue.
- Pedicle Grafts: These grafts use gum tissue from your actual gums. The tissue is repositioned or pulled to cover the exposed root.
Grafts tend to heal quickly, typically within a week. Our team will examine your mouth and gums to see which gum grafting treatment option will work best for you. Our experienced dental professionals use state-of-the-art equipment and the latest training to ensure your comfort and care.
