If gum disease isn’t treated at an early stage, gums recede and a gingival graft may be required to restore healthy gum tissue:
– During a gingival graft, a periodontist grafts healthy gum tissue over to an area of receded gum.
– This procedure will prevent gums from receding further and reduce the risk of decay or infection of the exposed root.
– Regular check-ups at the dentist and a thorough oral care routine will make sure gum disease is spotted early or prevented entirely.
“People who suffer from gum recession often begin to see exposed roots or longer-looking teeth.”
