Exposed tooth roots are the result of gum recession. Gum graft surgery will repair the defect and help prevent additional recession and bone loss.
During gum graft surgery, our periodontist, Dr. Françoise Akoury takes gum tissue from your palate to cover the exposed root. This can be done for one tooth or several teeth at once. Gum Grafting helps to reduce sensitivity and improve the aesthetics of your smile by evening out your gum line.
Whether you get a gum graft to improve function or aesthetics, a beautiful new smile and improved periodontal health is guaranteed so that you always keep smiling with comfort and confidence.
