Our Gum Recession Treatment Options
During gum grafting, our periodontists take a gum tissue graft, usually taken from the roof of your mouth or from a donor source, and gently stitch it around areas of recession. The tissue is placed beneath existing gum tissue to allow it to seamlessly attach, grow and blend into the surrounding tissue as it heals. This gum recession procedure restores gum levels to an attractive and healthy state for a beautiful smile.
The tunneling technique is a minimally-invasive, gum recession treatment option. During this procedure, our periodontists start by thoroughly cleaning the exposed tooth root surfaces then gently gaining access to areas beneath the gum, creating a tunnel. A grafting material, usually from a donor source, is then placed through the “tunneled” gum tissue to allow for healing. Once the tissue has healed, it will blend seamlessly into the smile.
