Grafting for Gum Recession
Dr. Lon Riemer is your St. Albert dentist, focusing on family dentistry, pediatric dentist and much more.
Gum recession can occur for a variety of reasons, such as: age, tooth brush abrasion, clenching and grinding, and gum disease. Soft tissue grafting can be great way to improve the gum support around teeth with localized recession. If you have some areas of gum recession that are bothersome or that you’d like to protect against further recession, ask Dr. Riemer about the suitability of this procedure for your gums.
