Soft Tissue Graft: Addressing Gum Recession Effectively
When significant gum recession occurs, it’s more than just an aesthetic issue; it’s a dental concern that requires immediate attention. Minor gum recession can often be mitigated through improvements in oral hygiene, but more severe cases pose greater risks. Exposed roots due to receding gums can make your teeth more sensitive to temperature changes and more susceptible to bacterial infiltration.
At Portal Dental Pasadena, we recommend soft tissue grafts to remedy this situation. By utilizing either tissue from the roof of your mouth or repositioning healthy gum tissue from nearby teeth, we aim to restore your gums to their proper level and function. With high success rates and predictable outcomes, soft tissue grafts can help you avoid the need for more invasive periodontal surgeries later on.
