Gum Grafting in Livingston, NJ

We Strive to Make Your Visit as Comfortable as Possible

Stained, yellow teeth are not the only thing keeping many people from being proud of their smile. Several patients struggle with a receding gum line. This common condition exposes the underlying surface of tooth roots, making a person vulnerable to tooth decay, tooth damage, and even tooth loss.

At A R Periodontics, we help patients in Livingston, NJ reverse the effects of gum recession with soft tissue gum grafting. The process involves raising the gum level to a healthier position on the teeth, resulting in the improved health and appearance of teeth and gums.

To learn more about our gum grafting services, contact Dr. Alan Rothstein at (973) 556-2655 today.

What Is Gum Recession?

Your gums are made up of pink tissue that is designed to protect the root of your teeth. Over time, your gum tissue may begin to gradually wear away, resulting in tooth roots being exposed to bacteria that can cause decay; this condition is known as gum recession and can be caused by poor oral hygiene, periodontal disease, vigorous tooth brushing, or inherited factors such as tooth positioning and gum thickness.

The Benefits of Gum Grafting in Livingston

At A R Periodontics, we resolve severe gum recession through gum grafting. During the treatment, our dental surgeon removes tissue from one site in the mouth and grafts that tissue over the location of the gum recession. The grafted tissue will blend seamlessly with existing tissue to cover the root of the tooth and protect it from plaque.

Once the gum grafting process is complete, patients experience several benefits, including:

  • Decreased tooth sensitivity
  • Minimized risk of tooth decay and damage
  • Reduced chances of tooth loss
  • Restored appearance of teeth and gums
  • Improved oral health
  • Increased self-confidence
