Do you suffer from receding gums around your teeth or implants? Do your teeth seem too long as a result? In addition to making a smile less appealing, exposed roots can be very sensitive to brushing and to heat or cold, and gum recession is often a sign of periodontal disease. Healthy smiles should have a snug, protective layer of soft tissue around the roots of teeth to help prevent damaging bacteria from attacking the root structure.
For both aesthetic and preventative reasons, Dr. Wilson can help diagnose the reason for the problem and can perform soft tissue grafting to cover your roots or to develop new gum tissue. Don’t settle for less than your perfect smile. Gum surgery from Dr. Wilson can improve your appearance while serving an important preventative purpose.
