Besides decay, another common oral health problem that patients have is receding gums (or gingival recession). Gingival recession can be caused by a number of reasons, including aggressive brushing, tooth overcrowding, and periodontal disease. This can create a number of uncomfortable symptoms, including increased sensitivity, cavities, elongated teeth, and exposed tooth roots.
To cover the exposed root surface and reduce your uncomfortable symptoms, we may recommend gingival grafting. Gingival grafting is a procedure that helps to rebuild the gum tissues and stop the roots from becoming further exposed.
