Gum grafting is simply a means to prevent additional gum recession, or fix recession that may have already occurred. It also helps to restore the supporting structure for your teeth, and creates a more aesthetically pleasing look to your smile.
Additionally, gum grafting covers any exposed roots that can be sensitive to temperature and more vulnerable to decay.
The Benefits of Gum Grafting
An exposed tooth is a sensitive tooth, so by undergoing gum grafting it will help reduce tooth discomfort, and restores the good health of the gums.
Crooked teeth and receding gums do not a pretty smile make. So by correcting these concerns, the appearance of your smile is improved.
