Gum grafts are sometimes needed to prevent further gum and bone loss or to regenerate lost tissue. Gum recession is when the gum tissue pulls away and exposes the tooth and root surfaces, causing an elongated appearance. Gum recession can also become extremely painful as more and more of your tooth and root become exposed. Eventually, if not taken care of, gum recession can cause extensive damage to your bone structure, and can actually result in tooth loss due to a loss of support.
Gum recession is a gradual process that stems from advanced stages of gum disease. 4% 12% of American adults are affected by this problem, and many cases go unnoticed until they become so severe that it is difficult NOT to notice. As I mentioned earlier, your tooth will begin to suffer from extreme sensitivity, an unattractive smile, and possible tooth loss. However, to prevent any of this from occurring, you can repair the damage and prevent future problems with a simple procedure: The Gum Graft.
