What Is Gum Recession and What Causes It?
Gum recession occurs when the gum tissue surrounding the teeth retracts and exposes the roots. This can make teeth look abnormally long and cause you to appear older. Receded gums also make your teeth more sensitive and prone to damage. This risk comes about because the roots have less protection and are softer than tooth enamel.

How Does Gum Recession Treatment Work?
Treatment for receding gums can vary, depending on the type of gum graft procedure performed. All treatments do, however, follow the same basic process.
Whether performing the Pinhole Surgical Technqiue, micro-surgical gum grafts, or converntial gum grafting, all areas are typically grafted during a single appointment. For patients who are anxious about the idea of grafting, sedation options are available so we can keep you comfortable. At your consultation, we will discuss and determine the method and materials best suited for your situation, as well as discuss any concerns.
After gum recession correction procedures, most patients only need over-the-counter medication for pain. Pain relief is generally only necessary for two to three days. Most patients return to work the next day with minimal discomfort. We are committed to patient well-being and ensuring that you get the desired results.
After the procedure, we will schedule you for follow-up appointments over the course of three to six months. If you have been suffering from receding gums, read more below to get started!
