Gum Grafts

WHAT ARE GUM GRAFTS?

A gum graft is a way of adding gum tissue to correct the damaging effects of gum recession.

Gum recession is the process in which the gum tissue that surrounds the teeth pulls away or recedes from a tooth, exposing more of the tooth or the tooth's root. Gum recession is a common dental problem; it affects 4% to 12% of adults and often goes unnoticed until it becomes more severe.

 Many people don't even notice that their gums have receded, because it is a gradual process, and in many cases gum recession can go untreated for a period of time, until it becomes more severe. Over time, an exposed tooth root can not only look unsightly, but can cause tooth sensitivity, especially when eating cold or hot foods. In extreme cases gum recession if untreated can cause tooth loss. To repair the damage and prevent further dental problems, a gum tissue graft may be needed.

Dr. Tyler Hendry is a Periodontist; a dentist who specializes in gums. Dr. Hendry has completed thousands of gum grafts and is one of the most experienced dentists in the area with gum recession treatment. Due to advances in technology and technique, Gum Grafting is now more effective, less invasive and less painful than ever. In some cases where appropriate the Pinhole Technique may be used. Dr. Hendry is certified in this technique.
