Treating Gum Recession and Root Defects to Improve Oral Health & Appearance of Your Smile

Gum recession may lead to cosmetic problems, tooth hypersensitivity, and even root decay. Gum recession can also be caused by excessive toothbrushing or even tooth clenching and grinding or bite issues. Sometimes a combination of tissue grafting and tooth colored, gum-line fillings has better outcomes than tissue grafting alone.

This patient had surgical therapy in our office and tooth-colored fillings placed by their general dentist. The gums were noted to be very healthy! Our patient was satisfied with how their teeth and gums looked and had no more tooth sensitivity!
