Gum and Bone Grafting in Dallas
Correct Gum Recession to Improve Your Oral Health
Gums are a more intricate part of your oral health than you might perceive them to be. They do more than just frame your smile; they also protect the roots of your teeth and hold them firmly in place. Patients who are affected by gum recession see the damages in both the aesthetic appearance of their smile and the health of their teeth.
Gum recession occurs when the gums pull away from the teeth due to disease, bacteria, or improper oral care. This damage exposes the sensitive roots of the tooth, leaving them vulnerable to further damage and eventually, tooth loss. Gum tissue does not grow back naturally when affected by gum recession, which is why we offer a professional gum grafting treatment to restore your smile. As a board-certified periodontist. Dr. Brock Lynn has the education and experience necessary to restore your beautiful smile and protect your teeth for years to come.

How Does Gum Grafting Work?
Our gum grafting treatments are time-tested and proven to protect your smile from the negative effects of gum recession. When performing gum grafting treatments for cases of gum recession, we will cover your exposed tooth roots with graft material that is typically taken from the roof of the mouth or a donor source.
The graft material is then carefully sutured over the site of the gum recession to protect the tooth roots and restore balance to the gum line. After a brief period of healing, the gum tissue will blend seamlessly with your smile. For patients with dental anxiety, we offer relaxing sedation dentistry, which can help make the procedure as painless as possible.
