Recession Treatment (Gum Grafting)

If someone is experiencing periodontal (gum) disease, one of the most noticeable symptoms is receding gums. This occurs when the gum line moves closer to your tooth root and exposes more of your tooth. This can occur in one or many teeth, but every case is unique. Some patients may experience sensitive roots and inflammation, while others may have no symptoms. 

Treatment for receding gums is essential before gum disease progresses. Luckily, our Periodontists and the team at Palm Beach Periodontics is experienced in identifying and treating receding gums with a gum graft surgery. We want you to achieve your healthiest smile, and we will be here every step of the way in treating your receding gums and cleaning any bacteria in your root system.

How do I know I need a Gum Graft?

Gum grafting surgery is recommended when the gums recede enough to expose the roots. Your gum line acts as a barrier to protect your root system from bacteria. Without this barrier, this bacteria can worsen your gum disease, cause deterioration to your teeth and jawbone and eventually cause tooth loss. With the help a gum grafting surgery, we can prevent further damage and restore health in your teeth in gums.

What types of gum grafting surgeries are there?

Depending on your specific case, you may need one of three types of gum grafting procedures: 

  • Connective Tissue Grafts
  • Free Gingival Grafts
  • Pedicle Grafts

Every patient is unique, and during your consultation we will determine the extent of the gum recession and develop a treatment plan for you from there. After your procedure, our team will provide you with a post-operative plan to ensure you heal quickly and beautifully.

Patient Reviews

Palm Beach Periodontics is absolutely amazing! I would give 10 stars if possible. My daughter had an emergency and needed to see a periodontist immediately, I called the office around 11:30 and they got her in at 1:30 the same day! The ladies in the office were all absolutely amazing and accommodating.
