A regenerative treatment that most commonly is used to treat exposure of roots from gum recession. Recession of the gingiva can cause issues beyond just aesthetics. In many cases when bone or root is exposed, it poses the risk of an increase in cavities and decay, loss of attachment, and sensitivity. By treating this condition, it can eliminate the risk for these issues and provide adequate gingiva to protect bone and roots. Connective tissue grafting is a procedure that can be used for gum recession. During the treatment, tissue is grafted to the affected site to protect the root from cavities, decay, and sensitivity. This procedure for root coverage will strengthen and thicken the gingiva and tissue surrounding the tooth. The process is minimally invasive and utilizes just one small incision, eliminating a lengthy healing time. Contact Pro Solutions Dental Group today to learn more or schedule a consultation with Drs. Jason Campbell, Rick Farnsworth and Mitchell Grimmer. We would love to discuss if connective tissue grafting is the right option for you. Call 928-776-1208!
