Receding gums can cause very serious problems ranging from worsening gum recession, exposed tooth roots, and eventual tooth loss. Receding gums can often cause tooth sensitivity to hot and cold, and can result in unsightly teeth and gums.
Gingival grafting is designed to correct these problems. In gingival grafting, a thin sliver of tissue is taken from the roof of the mouth and attached around the tooth. This minor surgical procedure can often produce dramatic results in a single visit.
