When a patient has receding gums, a periodontist can use various procedures to treat the condition. The type of procedure used to treat gum disease varies and is based on the severity of the gum recession. In the early stages, a professional cleaning; which is a non-surgical called scaling and root planing is usually enough to treat gum recession. However, if the condition is more extensive, then other methods would be used. Gingival grafts, also known as gum grafts are used by periodontists in cases in which gum recession is severe. The procedure involves taking a thin piece of tissue from the roof of the mouth and using it to naturally reconstruct the lost gingiva (the gums). If you have symptoms of gum disease, you should see our Roland Park periodontist to be evaluated and to discuss appropriate treatment options based on your particular case.
