Dr. Dinoi, the Periodontist at Norman Dental Center, treats gum recession with gingival grafts. A gingival graft can alleviate the symptoms many patients with gum recession issues suffer from and halt further damage from occurring.
Gum recession is very painful and not aesthetically pleasing. Gum graft surgery repairs the recession and the defects. This type of treatment prevents root sensitivity, future bone loss and further gum recession.
"Your gums may have receded for a variety of reasons, including aggressive tooth brushing or periodontal disease. You may not be in control of what caused the recession, but prior to treatment your periodontist can help you identify the factors contributing to the problem. Once these contributing factors are controlled, gum graft surgery will repair the defect and help to prevent additional recession and bone loss."
