Precious Smiles Family & Implant Dentistry in Bensalem PA

Gingivitis and periodontitis, have a profound effect on the gums. As gingivitis progresses, more and more bacteria and plaque build up, causing the gums to stretch. The end result is large pockets that remain on your gum line. These pockets cause the gums to recede, which is not aesthetically pleasing to the eye. When the gums recede, an abnormal amount of tooth structure is exposed.

Gum grafting is the corrective procedure that restores the gum to its natural, healthy state. Using soft gum tissue from the roof of the mouth, the receded gums are grafted. The goal is for the graft to cover any exposed tooth and root surfaces in the oral cavity.  This grafting encourages new tissue growth that will enable the gums to return to its original position around the teeth. The procedure is routine and entails a minimal amount of downtime and discomfort.
