Your Gum Health

Gum recession is an incredibly common periodontal health concern. Your gums can recede for a number of reasons, including:

  • Overaggressive brushing
  • Prior orthodontic treatment that was aggressive
  • You have thin gum tissue
  • Gingivitis/Gum Disease

While some of the reasons listed above are easily corrected, of more concern is when your gums recede due to gum disease brought on by bacteria and inflammation caused by poor oral hygiene. When gum disease is left untreated, it can cause your gums to recede. A gum graft can reverse the effects and lead you down the road to restored oral health.

What is a Gum Graft?

Gum grafts are performed by your dentist, or a gum specialist called a periodontist. Gum grafting is the leading choice of dentists for treating gum recession. A gum graft will reverse the effects brought on by poor oral hygiene and other causes of gum recession. The process involves getting a piece of tissue from either the roof of your mouth or from the healthy gum tissue and then grafting this tissue to where the gum has receded. It is a quick and fairly simple procedure that utilizes your body’s own tissue, thus greatly reducing any chance of rejection.
