Gum grafting may be needed when the gums recede in some areas. Gum grafting can be used not only to make your gums healthier but also to appear more attractive. If there is minor gum recession there may be no treatment needed in order to protect the tooth. However, in certain cases when the recession is more extensive your teeth will lose their first line of protection against bacteria. Your smile will also not look as attractive because receding gums are not particularly attractive. Receding gums can also be caused by improper brushing. So it it is important to make sure that when you brush your teeth you use the appropriate tooth brush and tooth brushing method. When gum recession occurs there can often be root sensitivity to hot and cold foods as well. Also when gum recession begins it can cause a reaction of worsening recession that will eventually expose the tooth root to the surface. This can cause a variety of dental health problems for your teeth. Gum tissue grafting will be able to solve all of these problems, both cosmetic and practical. Our Syosset periodontist will be able to take a thin piece of tissue from the roof of the mouth, or moved tissue over from an adjacent area, to provide a stable gum replacement. The resulting graft will thoroughly heal and work to protect the roots of the tooth, as well as to improve the look of any unattractive receding gums.
