Periodontal procedures play a crucial role in preventing dental problems, addressing gum recession, and improving the aesthetics of your gum line. If you have exposed tooth roots due to gum recession, you may be seeking ways to enhance your smile or alleviate tooth sensitivity caused by hot or cold foods and liquids. Soft tissue grafts are a recommended treatment option to cover these exposed roots and restore gum tissue, resulting in improved oral health and a more attractive smile.
Gum recession is the condition where the gum tissue surrounding the teeth wears away or pulls back, exposing the tooth roots. Aggressive tooth brushing or periodontal disease are common factors contributing to gum recession. While you may not have control over what caused the recession, your periodontist can help identify and control the underlying factors before proceeding with treatment. Soft tissue grafts are a procedure where your periodontist uses gum tissue from your palate or a donor source to cover the exposed root or develop gum tissue in areas with excessive recession. This versatile procedure can be performed for one tooth or multiple teeth to even the gum line and reduce sensitivity.
Undergoing a soft tissue graft offers a range of benefits that contribute to both improved function and aesthetics. Here are the advantages you can expect:
