Gum Grafting Restores and Protects Your Roots

Gum recession takes place gradually and can be due to a number of contributing factors. Once the recession reaches an unhealthy state, your teeth may begin to appear abnormally long or uneven, detracting from the beauty of your smile. Esthetics aside, untreated gum recession, can lead to tooth sensitivity and the root surfaces are more susceptible to cavities.

As the gums recede, the bone also recedes below the gum. As bone lone loss occurs, the strength and functioning of your teeth becomes compromised. As recognized leaders in cosmetic dentistry and oral health, the team of highly trained dentists at LeCuyer & Amato Dentistry can help you reestablish healthy gums via gum grafting.

Gum grafting involves taking a thin piece of healthy tissue from your mouth or from a donor source, and attaching it to the area where you have experienced gum recession. The graft is held in place via sutures. The graft heals over time and can blend with the existing gums for a seamless transition.
