Reverse the Effects of Gum Recession with Skilled Periodontal Care

When gum tissues recede, they pull away from the teeth and expose the underlying tooth roots. This process, known as gum recession, also changes the appearance of the smile, revealing longer-looking teeth and other cosmetic concerns. Gum grafting is a routine procedure performed by our expert periodontist that reverses the effects of gum recession, returning the gum line to a healthier level and an attractive appearance to your smile. Dr. Christopher Bingham and our compassionate, knowledgeable team understand the effects gum recession has on your oral health and well-being. We take a whole-body approach to periodontal care and can help you determine the cause of your gum recession, while providing the necessary gum-grafting procedure to improve your health, comfort and quality of life.

Protect Your Teeth And Restore Your Smile With Gum Grafting Treatment

Tried and true, gum grafting is a  periodontal procedure designed to replace lost tissue and restore receded gums to a healthier position on the teeth, and a routine procedure for our established periodontist and team. With gum grafting, we source healthy gum tissue from either your own mouth or a safe, fully vetted donor source. These samples are then precisely sutured to areas of gum recession, and allowed to heal. As the new tissue heals, it integrates with existing gum tissue to form a healthier gum line that serves to protect the tooth roots from the oral environment.
