At Hunter Dental, our Markham dentists use gum grafts to conceal exposed root surfaces and reduce tooth sensitivity. A gum graft includes a number of periodontal surgical procedures involving the transplant of gum tissue from the roof of your mouth to another area.Request An Appointment
Gum recession happens when your gum tissue begins to pull back from the teeth, exposing the tooth root. This can lead to severe tooth sensitivity, particularly when exposed to hot or cold temperatures.
Gums tend to recede slowly. Many people are unaware that it is happening until they begin to notice symptoms, such as discomfort.
Treating gum recession is important to protect your teeth.
Left untreated, your tooth roots become exposed and more susceptible to decay, eventually resulting in tooth loss.
People will sometimes choose a gum graft procedure for cosmetic reasons as it can reduce the perception of longer teeth.
