Enjoy Gums That Look & Feel Better With a Gum Graft

When your gums aren’t healthy, it’s hard to flash a winning smile. Receding gums can be the result of  gum disease, injury, or genetics. One study found that smokers were four times as likely as non-smokers to develop gum recession. When your gums are receding, people take notice and it can affect the quality of your first impressions. That’s why you should take good care of your gums in the first place, practicing good brushing and flossing habits and avoiding harmful activities like smoking.

If your gums are already receding, we can make them healthy again with a gum graft. One of the most common types of gum grafts involves taking tissue from the roof of your mouth and placing it where you’ve lost gum tissue. This procedure helps alleviate problems such as sensitivity and tooth decay and gives you a nicer looking smile. We can:

  • Perform a grafting procedure right here in our office, so you won’t have to seek the help of a specialist
  • Make sure you’re completely relaxed with amenities like blankets, soothing music, and aromatherapy
  • Offer you a choice of three kinds of sedation, if needed
  • Provide thorough directions to ensure a smooth recovery
