When recession of the gums occurs, the body loses a natural defense against both bacterial penetration and trauma. When gum recession is a problem, gum reconstruction using gum grafting techniques is an option. A gum graft is designed to solve these problems by covering the exposed portion of the root.
The gum graft procedure is highly predictable and results in a stable healthy band of attached tissue around the tooth.
When recession of the gums occur, the body loses a natural defense against both bacterial penetration and trauma. When there is only minor recession, some healthy gum often remains and protects the tooth, so that no treatment other than modifying home care practices is necessary. However, when recession reaches the mucosa, the first line of defense against bacterial penetration is lost.
In addition, gum recession often results in root sensitivity to hot and cold foods as well as an unsightly appearance to the gum and tooth. Gum recession, when significant, can predispose to worsening recession and expose the root surface, which is softer than enamel, leading to root caries and root gouging.
