Soft Tissue Grafting
Dr. Krese may recommend soft tissue grafting to stop further gum recession, and/or to improve the aesthetics of your gum line.
Recession occurs for a variety of reasons, including aggressive tooth brushing, clenching/grinding of the teeth, or progressive periodontal disease. If left untreated, gum recession can worsen over time and eventually result in tooth loss.
Exposed tooth roots are the result of gum recession and often result in tooth sensitivity to hot or cold foods and liquids. Dr. Krese will help identify the contributing factors to your recession and provide a treatment method to repair the defect.
