Periodontal (gum) disease attacks the soft tissues that surround and support your teeth. When these tissues become damaged or infected, they can begin to recede away from your tooth, resulting in gum loss. Loss of protective gum tissue leads to painful root exposure, and if it's left untreated, this condition results in bone and tooth loss.
Restore Lost Gum Tissue
Gum grafting surgery provides a solution for restoring lost gum tissue and protecting your tooth and root. By adding soft tissue to your gums, it will heal and integrate with your remaining tissue over time and protect your tooth and root from the damage caused by gum disease.
