Gum Recession Treatment
Restores the Gum Line

Your smile is one of the first things people notice about you. A receding gum line can take away from your beautiful smile and make you feel self-conscious about your appearance, or cause sensitivity. Whether you have lost gum tissue because of gum disease or from overly aggressive brushing, we can help. Our doctors perform gum grafting and the Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™) to re-balance the gum line and restore health and beauty to your smile.

Common Gum Recession Symptoms

One of the most noticeable symptoms of gum recession is a small dent that starts to form where the tooth meets the gum. This is a sign that the gums are pulling away and will only get larger as time goes by. Other symptoms of gum recession include:

  • Teeth look longer
  • Asymmetrical gum line
  • Gums with a ragged or torn appearance
  • Sensitivity
  • Loose teeth

Gum Recession Treatment

Seeking treatment for gum recession is an important steps towards better oral health. Since the gums cannot grow back on their own, a gum graft is usually necessary to rebuild the gum tissue. We also perform PST™ which does not involve any grafting. This innovative technique can restore your gum line using your own gum tissue and is a minimally-invasive alternative to surgery and other procedures. Your gums will heal fairly quickly after these procedures and we will provide post-op instructions to ensure you get the best possible result.
