Our Personalized Gum Recession Treatment

Gum grafting involves using a tissue sample to cover over the exposed tooth roots to reduce sensitivity, stabilize the teeth, and improve soft tissue aesthetics. This tissue can either be from the patient’s palate or a donor source. Dr. Williams will use his expertise in the different types of gum graft surgery to choose the best treatment for your oral health needs. To ensure your comfort, we’ll provide custom sedation services at your appointment.

During your procedure, Dr. Williams will use the appropriate tissue sample to place over your gums and tooth roots, then suture this tissue in place for the healing period. Over the next several months, your gums and the tissue sample will fuse to create a strong and aesthetic gumline. Proper gum height and attachment help to reduce bacteria accumulation and infection (gum disease), keeping your smile healthy, functional, and free from sensitivity.

Gum recession won’t stop on its own.
