Gingival Grafting in Kitchener

Your gums can recede due to a variety of reasons including:

  • Tooth crowding
  • Brushing too hard
  • Genetics
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Gum disease

Gum recession - or gingival recession - can cause a number of problems, including exposed tooth roots, increased sensitivity, cavities, and overly long teeth.

To treat gum recession, we offer gingival grafting, which uses grafted oral tissue to cover the exposed tooth roots. This surgical procedure helps to reduce sensitivity, prevent future root exposure, reduce the risk of cavities, and improve the health of your smile.

If you’re suffering from gum recession, contact Kitchener Dentist Dr. Smaily to set up an appointment today.
