Exposed tooth roots are the result of gum recession, heavy traumatic brushing and /or thin gingiva. Gum graft surgery will repair the defect and help to prevent additional recession and bone loss by increasing the thickness of your gingiva and in some occasions, covering the exposed roots
During gum graft surgery, we may take gum tissue from the roof of your mouth or a tissue bank to cover your exposed root. This can be done for one tooth or several teeth making your gum line uniform and reducing teeth sensitivity.
Gum Graft surgery will give you a beautiful new smile and improved your periodontal health.
