Factors such as gum diseases or bad brushing habits may cause gum recession, a condition in which the gums recede to the level of the tooth’s root. It is thus exposed and more vulnerable to hypersensitivity or to tooth decay.
The purpose of a gum graft is to thicken and raise the gum so that it may cover the tooth’s exposed root while keeping it from receding further. The aim of this minor surgical procedure is to protect your oral health from potential problems.
