What Is a Gum Graft?
Gum graft is a periodontal surgery performed to treat the condition of receding gums due to moderate or more severe periodontal disease. Gum grafting can be carried out on gums that have receded, and while it may improve the appearance of a smile, it can also protect your teeth against the effects of gum recession.
Gum Graft Before and After
What Is Gum Recession?
Gum recession occurs when you lose gum tissue around your teeth. Usually, healthy gums fit snugly around teeth, helping to protect them and creating an attractive smile. Receding gums result in more of the tooth being visible to the point that you may even see the roots. This can cause damage to the bone surrounding the tooth. As the tooth roots are exposed, they can feel more sensitive and could become decayed.
Lots of people have some degree of receding gums as it is often a side effect of advanced gum disease or periodontal disease. Many people don't even realize that their gums have receded as it is a gradual process.
Over time the teeth can begin to look longer, and they may begin to feel more sensitive particularly when eating hot and cold foods.
It is important to treat substantial gum recession as otherwise, it could eventually lead to tooth loss, and the gum graft surgery we perform in our Midtown Manhattan, NYC office can help restore lost tissues.
