Gum Grafting RECESSION treatment in Tallahassee

WHAT IS Gum Recession Treatment?

Gum grafting reconstructs gum tissue

A gum graft will protect your teeth if you have gum recession.

When a recession of the gingiva occurs, the body loses a natural defense against both bacterial penetration and trauma. When gum recession is a problem, gum reconstruction using grafting techniques is an option.

When there is only minor recession, some healthy gingiva often remains and protects the tooth, so that no treatment other than modifying home care practices is necessary. However, when recession reaches the mucosa, the first line of defense against bacterial penetration is lost.

In addition, gum recession often results in root sensitivity to hot and cold foods as well as an unsightly appearance of the gum and tooth. When significant, gum recession can predispose to worsening recession and expose the root surface, which is softer than enamel, leading to root caries and root gouging.

Gum grafting
A gingival graft is designed to solve these problems. A thin piece of tissue is taken from the roof of the mouth or gently moved over from adjacent areas to provide a stable band of attached gingiva around the tooth. The gingival graft may be placed in such a way as to cover the exposed portion of the root. The gingival graft procedure is highly predictable and results in a stable, healthy band of attached tissue around the tooth.

Our Latest Patient Testimonial

Dr. Guzman and her team are exceptional. My surgical experience was quick, comfortable, and uneventful, and they were able to get me in within 2 hours when I was experiencing some post-op discomfort a few days later. My treatment coordinator, Kira, was so patient and kind when going over all of my questions with me beforehand. I have no complaints and would recommend this office to anyone seeking periodontal treatment.

Dr. Guzman was wonderful! She said my home care was very good, which pleased me because I work hard at it. I look forward to seeing just before my procedure. I'll have a chance to ask a few last minute questions, which will be extremely helpful to me.
