Understanding Gum Recession

Gum recession occurs when the gum tissue surrounding the teeth wears away or pulls back, exposing more of the tooth root. This can lead to increased sensitivity, aesthetic concerns, and an increased risk of dental problems such as decay and tooth loss. Common causes of gum recession include:

  • Periodontal disease
  • Aggressive tooth brushing
  • Genetics
  • Hormonal changes
  • Tobacco use

Our Gum Grafting Process

At Dentin Family Dentistry, our experienced dental professionals utilize advanced techniques and materials to perform gum grafting procedures with precision and care. Our goal is to restore healthy gum tissue, improve gum aesthetics, and enhance the overall health and function of your smile.

  1. Initial Consultation: During your initial consultation, we will conduct a thorough examination of your oral health, including assessing the extent of gum recession and identifying any underlying causes. We will discuss your treatment options, address any concerns you may have, and develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your needs.
  2. Types of Gum Grafts: There are several types of gum grafts available, including:
    • Connective Tissue Graft: This involves taking a small piece of tissue from beneath the surface of the palate and grafting it onto the receded gum area.
    • Free Gingival Graft: Similar to a connective tissue graft, but the tissue is taken directly from the surface of the palate.
    • Pedicle Graft: Involves using nearby gum tissue to cover the receded area without completely removing it from its blood supply.
  3. Gum Grafting Procedure: The gum grafting procedure is performed under local anesthesia to ensure your comfort throughout the process. The graft tissue is carefully positioned and secured over the receded gum area, where it integrates with existing gum tissue and promotes new growth.
  4. Healing and Recovery: Following the gum grafting procedure, it’s essential to follow post-operative care instructions provided by our dental team. This may include avoiding certain foods, practicing good oral hygiene, and attending follow-up appointments to monitor your healing progress.
  5. Benefits of Gum Grafting: Gum grafting offers numerous benefits, including:
    • Restoring gum health and function
    • Improving gum aesthetics and smile appearance
    • Reducing tooth sensitivity and risk of decay
    • Preventing further gum recession and tooth loss
