What causes Gum Recession?

Gum recession can occur for several reasons including gum disease, traumatic toothbrushing, thin gum tissue and the position of your teeth in your jaw. This can make the teeth appear longer, increase sensitivity to hot/cold, and increase the risk of dental decay on exposed root surfaces. Minor recession may not require any treatment if the causes have been addressed and adequate remaining gum tissue remains. More severe recession may compromise the protective capacity of the gum tissue and increase the risk of gum disease and further recession.

In this instance, a gingival (gum) graft may be required to improve the situation. This involves taking a thin piece of tissue from the roof of the mouth and transplanting it to the area of concern. The objective is to provide a thicker more stable band of attached gingiva around the tooth.

Results will vary between individuals, and it is important to understand that any dental procedure carries risks and complications. Your periodontist will determine the best treatment plan for you.
