Reveal a Healthier Gumline by Restoring Its Appearance

Gums can recede for different reasons. Sometimes it’s a genetic issue. Other times, it results from brushing too hard. It can also be caused by an injury. One of the more common reasons, though, is gum disease. Before your dentist works on your gumline, they will check if your gums are healthy. They may need to perform comprehensive gum disease treatments to stop any infections.

Once your gums are in good shape, our team can move forward with the gum graft. This procedure adds new tissue to your gums, either from a donor or from another part of your mouth. Your dentist will use advanced technology, such as digital X-rays and 3-D imaging, to plan the treatment precisely. If you are suffering from severe gum recession, your dentist may refer you to a specialist to ensure you get the treatment you need.

While the idea of oral surgery may seem a little nerve-wracking, we’ll make sure you’re comfortable. You can:

  • Choose from laughing gas or oral sedation to ease your nerves
  • Relax with a pillow or blanket
  • Bring your own headphones to block out the sights and sounds of our equipment
  • Take as much time as you need, including requesting breaks
  • Ask any questions ahead of time to address any concerns

Once the procedure is complete, your dentist will review aftercare instructions to encourage the healing process.
