Gum Grafting Procedures

When recession of the gingiva occurs, the body loses a natural defense against both bacterial penetration and trauma. Root surfaces of the teeth become exposed leaving them at risk to cavities and root gouging as well as causing the teeth to appear long. Gum Grafting can be a predictable way to cover unsightly, sensitive or exposed root surfaces and to prevent future gum recession.

Crown Lengthening

Crown lengthening (or crown exposure) is required when the edge of a crown or restoration is deep below the gum tissue and not accessible for oral hygiene. It is also usually too close to the bone surrounding the tooth. It also may be required when a crown or restoration is being replaced.
