A Healthy Smile Needs Healthy Gums

Gum recession is when the ridge of your gum tissue begins to pull back toward the tooth roots. This has many potential negative consequences, from the functional to the aesthetic. Gum recession can expose a large portion of your tooth roots, causing you to experience temperature sensitivity when eating and drinking. It can make your gum line appear lopsided, transforming what may otherwise be a healthy smile into one that makes you self-conscious.

xWorse yet, leaving the condition untreated can lead to gum disease, tooth loss, and jawbone loss. The good news is that multiple options exist to treat your gum disease; some are minimally invasive. With extensive training and years of experience, Dr. Graig Fischgrund leads our specialized periodontal team in Hicksville & and Plainview, NY. We’ll help you avoid the risks of gum recession with personalized and comfortable treatment.

How We Reverse Receding Gums

If you’re experiencing gum recession, you may believe you’ll never see your beautiful, balanced smile again. Gum recession reversal is possible; the best news is that you already have the solution to your problem. Our team can remove a small amount of healthy soft tissue from the roof of your mouth, in front of any teeth with disproportionate gum coverage, or from another donor source and attach it to the area where your gums have receded. Gum grafting, as this treatment is called, restores your gum tissue’s protective function, health, and aesthetics.

 With artistic precision, our periodontist can recreate your full, original gum line, adding gum grafts where the tissue is deficient to even out its appearance. This is done to restore the natural curved shape of the tissue around your teeth. Following this procedure, Dr. Fischgrund will explain certain habits and other factors contributing to your gum recession so you can avoid them in the future to maintain your beautiful smile.
