Restore Your Gum Health and Protect Your Teeth
Your gum tissue is vital to your overall oral health. Healthy tissue protects your teeth above and below the surface.
Your gum tissue provides necessary protection from harmful bacteria that can cause periodontal (gum) disease. Damaged, weakened, or receding gums that are untreated can eventually lead to tooth loss.
What is Gum Grafting?
Gum grafting repairs and restores your tissue. The procedure covers your exposed tooth surface or your tooth where gum recession has occurred.
Tissue is obtained from a secondary source and placed in the space needed to protect the underlying bone and tissue from further damage. Gum grafting protects your tooth surface and root from infection and bone loss and it can also reshape your gum line to improve your appearance.
Contact the office of Dr. William Zinney about your gum related issues. Schedule an examination to discuss gum restoration with gum grafting.
