Gum Grafting in Allen
Restore What You Have Lost
Gum recession is one of the most common symptoms of periodontal disease. Left untreated, it can negatively impact the appearance of the smile and even make the teeth more likely to fall out because the sensitive roots are exposed to decay. In order to restore both your smile’s health and splendor, Dr. Fatima Robertson can perform what is called a gum graft.
For this, she will harvest a bit of healthy tissue from the roof of your mouth, and this will be placed over the area where your gums have receded. After a few weeks of healing, the new tissue will fully integrate with the surrounding gums to give you a complete, natural-looking result. This procedure can usually be completed over the course of just one appointment while using local anesthesia to ensure your comfort. In the end, it will give you the kind of smile you’re always proud to show off.
Is gum recession causing you to hide your smile? A gum graft could easily make that anxiety a thing of the past. To learn more about it and how it could help you, contact us today.
