Potential Causes Of Gum Recession
One of the most common causes of gum recession is advanced gum disease. But gum disease isn’t the only potential source of gum recession. Here are some other issues that may damage gums and require a gum graft:
- Overly forceful brushing and/or flossing
- Poor oral health
- Teeth grinding
- Crooked or otherwise misaligned teeth
- Injury or another source of trauma
Providing You With Gentle Gum Grafts
If we recommend a gum graft, we will carefully explain each step of the process so you’ll know exactly what to expect. We will also assess your situation and plan your treatment using advanced dental technology, including intraoral cameras and scanners.
To ensure you won’t feel a thing, we’ll first numb the area with anesthetic. Then, we will place a small strip of tissue over your exposed tooth roots to protect them and improve the appearance of your gumline.
If you are anxious, we can also use dental sedation options to relieve your dental anxiety!
