Many cases of gum recession may need a surgical procedure know as gum graft. As gum recession can be damaging to your teeth and surrounding structures, a gum graft is a great solution to protect exposed roots that can lead to permanent bone loss and consequently, tooth loss.
There are several kinds of gum grafts, such as connective tissue grafts, free gingival grafts, and pedicle grafts. Your periodontist will assess what method is ideal for your case, based on a comprehensive periodontal evaluation.
