Gum Recession Treatment - Quincy, MA
Gum Grafting Procedures Restore a Healthy, Youthful Smile
How Gum Recession Affects Your Health & Appearance
Many patients come to our practice looking to reverse the effects of an aging smile that often result from a receding gum line. Gum recession causes the gums to pull back from the teeth and expose the underlying tooth roots. The root portions of teeth are darker in color, softer than enamel and more susceptible to temperature sensitivity, damage and decay. Caused by gum disease, genetics and parafunctional factors like teeth grinding, gum recession is a concerning oral condition that will not resolve without effective treatment. At Advanced Dental Care of Quincy, our expert periodontal team routinely screens for signs and symptoms of gum recession and offers treatment proven to restore gums to a healthier level for a more attractive, youthful smile.

A Time-Tested Approach to Reversing Gum Recession
Gum grafting is an effective, proven technique our board certified periodontist uses to replace tissue lost to gum recession. By grafting tissue from your own mouth (or other safe biocompatible source) over areas of exposed tooth roots, we can restore a receded gum line to a proper level on the teeth. Our periodontal team uses expert technique to precisely harvest gum tissue and suture these samples to the gums surrounding an area of gum recession. Over the healing period, the newly placed tissue integrates fully with existing gums for a seamless appearance, reversing the effects of gum recession.
