Gum recession can leave you with exposed root surface that can result in tooth sensitivity and have a negative affect on esthetics.
If left untreated, continued bone loss and subsequent tissue recession can lead to tooth loss. Soft tissue grafting is indicated for treating teeth with gingival recession and for increasing the width and thickness of the attached gingiva around teeth and implants. At St. Catharines Dental Centre we provide a minimally invasive tissue grafting using an allograft donor tissue (AlloDerm). If you are concerned with your gum recession or have been previously informed you require a gingival graft, please contact us and we can evaluate your tissues and answer any questions you may have.
