Gum Grafting Surgery


Case #1
This patient had recession, associated with a lower front tooth, that needed to be addressed. The muscle from her lip was part of the problem that was helping to pull the gum tissue down. A gum graft was indicated, which involved taking some gum from the roof of her mouth and positioning/suturing it place.

Case #2
This patient was experiencing sensitivity along the root surface of her premolars.  Gum recession caused exposure of the tooth root which can be very sensitive. After completing a gum graft, the patient has no sensitivity and has adequate gum tissue to protect the tooth root.

Case #3
This patient was unhappy with the appearance of her smile due to gum recession on her front teeth.  The exposed tooth root made her teeth appear longer than the opposite side.  She also experienced a lot of cold sensitivity causing her to avoid certain foods and drinks.  A gum graft on both teeth gave her the perfect amount of tissue to improve the gum line yielding a beautiful smile!.

What People Say

I'm glad to have this opportunity to comment in writing on the services that I received yesterday. First, after 50 years of visiting various dentists all over the country, I have never been with one that kept me waiting less time than you. I don't think I've ever spent more than one minute in your waiting room. The work that I had done yesterday involved replacing a leaking crown and repairing an old cracked filling. After removing the old crown, some additional decay was discovered and had to be corrected. I was extremely impressed with the speed and effiency with which the doctor accomplished all of this work. Having my new crown manufactured and ready to install on the same visit is a HUGE benefit and very much appreciated by me. It is very clear that uniformly excellent customer service and highly professional dentistry are top priorities at this practice.
