Repair Your Receded Gums & Keep Your Teeth Intact
Did you know that receded gums left untreated can eventually cause you to lose teeth? If this happens, you would require significant restorative dental work to get back your smile and your bite.
The good news is that effective help is only a phone call away. Wilton Dental Associates has an in-house periodontist who can provide the treatment you need to get your gums back into shape. In addition, Dr. Strait received specialty training as a periodontist and has helped many patients with their damaged gums. Their painless numbing techniques and sedation will help keep you comfortable during your procedure.
A gum graft is often the treatment used to repair gums that have receded. A graft involves your dentist taking tissue from another area of your mouth or from a donor source and attaching it where your gums have receded. We can perform both connective tissue grafts, which use connective tissue to rebuild your gums, and sliding grafts, which “slide” over nearby tissue to cover a tooth. New tissue will grow around the grafted tissue, and within a few months, your gums will appear normal again. Not only will you feel confident smiling, but you won’t have to worry about bleeding or pain when brushing and flossing.
