Treatment of Gum Recession
When poor oral hygiene is a factor in recession, a professional dental cleaning is advised to clear debris and bacteria from the gum pockets. To prevent severe tartar build-up, Dr. Rodda may recommend scaling and root planing to allow the tissue to heal and reattach to the tooth.To fight gingival recession, a regenerative treatment such as gum grafting may be recommended . This procedure involves removing the damaged tissue and replacing it with donor tissue. Gum grafting restores healthy gum tissue so your smile can look its best.
