Advanced periodontics has brought new treatments in gum restoration, including gum grafting. This procedure requires a high level of skill to perform, and Dr. Cho is a leading authority on all forms of periodontal disease, serving as a professor and frequent speaker and lecturer on the subject. If your gums have receded to the point in which the roots have been exposed, gum grafting may be part of your treatment plan.
Why Gum Grafting?
Some patients will have gum grafting in a treatment plan. The common reasons to have this procedure include:
- Reducing tooth sensitivity
- Improved appearance
- Improved gum health
Gum Grafting to Resolve Receding Gum Tissue
As gum disease progresses, one unsightly symptom is receding gums. As the gums shrink back from the teeth, more and more of the tooth root is exposed, making the teeth look longer, and leading to sensitivity and pain. To restore your gums for oral health, to protect the roots of the teeth, and to create a more appealing appearance to your smile, gum grafting could be the right treatment. Only a full evaluation of your current condition will reveal what treatment plan will be best. We urge you to call our Pasadena offices to set an appointment if you have notice that your gums have begun to recede; the earlier the condition is treated, the better it is for you and your overall health.
