Restoring Lost Tissue and Reversing the Effects of Gum Recession

Gum recession, the gradual pulling away of the gum tissue surrounding teeth, is a serious oral health concern. As the gums recede, the roots of teeth become exposed, increasing the risk of tooth damage, infection, and tooth loss. Symptoms of gum recession - sensitive teeth, loose teeth, bleeding gums, elongation of teeth – can lead to tooth loss if left untreated. At Eastside Implants and Periodontics, our periodontal experts are trained in restoring lost tissue and reversing gum recession using a variety of gum grafting techniques.

Gum recession may be caused by gum disease, genetics, tobacco use, trauma, ill-fitting restorations, oral piercings and parafunctional habits (teeth grinding or clenching). No matter the cause, however, gum grafting restores the gum to a healthier level, offering benefits like:

 

Covers and protects tooth root

Minimizes tooth sensitivity

Improves cosmetic appearance

Restores balanced, even gum line

Reduced risk of gum decay
