Your gums do more than just frame your smile—they protect your tooth roots and help hold your teeth firmly in place. Yet, when you are affected by gum recession, both the aesthetics of your smile and the health of your teeth are compromised. Gum recession occurs when the gums pulls away from the teeth due to disease, bacteria or improper oral care. This exposes your sensitive tooth roots to potential damage and can even lead to tooth loss. Gum tissue does not grow back naturally when affected by gum recession, so professional gum grafting treatment is needed to restore your smile. As a board-certified periodontist, Dr. Brock Lynn has the education, experience and attention to detail to return your beautiful smile and keep your teeth safeguarded with gum grafting in Dallas, TX.
Our gum grafting treatments are time-tested and proven to protect your smile from the negative effects of gum recession in Dallas, TX. When performing gum grafting treatment for cases of gum recession, we will cover your exposed tooth roots with graft material taken from you (typically the roof of the mouth) or a donor source. This graft material is then carefully sutured over the site of gum recession to protect the tooth roots and restore balance to the gum line. After a brief healing period, the gum tissue will blend seamlessly within your smile. For those with dental anxiety, we offer relaxing sedation dentistry to make your gum recession procedure pain- and worry-free.
