Have you noticed a change in your smile? Even minor changes in the appearance of your gum line can be an indicator of a far more severe health issue. When your gums start to wear away and pull back from your teeth, this is called recession. Gum recession can happen so gradually that many people are not aware of it until they start to suffer from side effects. Symptoms of gingival recession include:

Whatever the reason for your gum recession it is vital to seek treatment immediately. Call our office to receive your appointment today.
Whether you have gum recession involving a few teeth or your entire mouth, our periodontist is likely to recommend a gum grafting procedure. Gingival grafting is a safe and simple procedure that adds healthy gum tissue to areas with low volume. Without the protective barrier that our healthy gums provide, the roots of our teeth are exposed to outside stimuli and left vulnerable to infection. Once your gum tissue wears away it does not grow back on its own. Treating your recession with gum grafting will improve your overall oral health and the aesthetics of your smile.

I needed some deep cleaning in my pockets and they were able to see me on short notice. When I came in they did a 360° scan of my teeth, so they were able to pinpoint the exact problems that I had. Since the procedure, I feel like my gums aren’t as sensitive to cold water and stuff like that were able to help out. The procedure was quite painless. It was easy, fast without even feeling rushed. Somebody called me the next day which was pretty nice, just to check up just to see how I was doing.See More Reviews
