Periodontics can often be used to make your front teeth look better
Gingival recession is a problem which effects millions of Americans. It may be caused by toothbrush abrasion, periodontal disease or simply as a product of aging. When gingival recession occurs the teeth appear longer , the root surface is exposed and generalized sensitivity of the teeth occurs. These problems can all be addressed by the use of gingival grafting. This is a procedure where Dr. Bloom can literally move the gum to a position that covers more of the tooth structure. This can also be accomplished by using graft tissue – either an autograft from the patient’s palate or a synthetic graft to cover the exposed tooth surfaces. Any type of this procedure will alleviate the sensitivity and will allow for an outstanding aesthetic result.
