Soft Tissue Grafts to Correct Receding Gums and Improve Cosmetic Appearance
Periodontal disease can cause the gum to recede from the crown of the tooth, exposing the root structure. While the exposed root can cause increased sensitivity and discomfort, it also creates a cosmetic problem, especially if the gum is receding on the front tooth.
At Ormond Beach Periodontics and Implant Dentistry, we offer a solution to this problem through soft tissue grafts. To perform a soft tissue graft procedure, gum tissue will need to be taken from the palate or other donor source and use it to cover up the exposed root and correct the gum line. As a result, the patient will experience less sensitivity and an improved cosmetic appearance. Soft tissue grafts can also prevent additional gum recession and bone loss from occurring.
