Gum Grafting at Dold Family Dental in Wichita, KS
Gingival – or gum – recession is a problem that affects a significant portion of patients. The process is typically slow, but as your gums recede, the roots of your teeth are exposed. Not only is this unattractive, but root exposure can also lead to tooth sensitivity and contribute to tooth loss.
Common causes of gingival recession include gum disease, repeated trauma from brushing too hard, and tobacco use.
Unfortunately, gum tissue will not grow back on its own. Surgical treatment is the only way to correct root exposure from gingival recession. Dr. Steven offers gum grafting procedures at Dold Family Dental to re-cover your roots, reducing tooth sensitivity and restoring the beauty of your smile.
