If your gums have receded to a point where the root surfaces of teeth are already exposed you may require gum grafting surgery. It is sometimes possible to graft tissue from your palate or another donor source to cover a portion of the exposed root and to reinforce the fragile, receding gum tissue and protect it from further damage.
Gum grafting also has cosmetic benefits if you feel your teeth are too large and are embarrassed by the amount exposed tooth. Gum grafting can also be used to lower the gum line to a more attractive level: this also increases the overall health of the teeth and gums.
At Paramount Dental Sydney we have a thorough consultation and examination process to ensure that the treatment suits your unique situation and personal needs.
Several factors can vary and increase the cost of treatment. Our team will advise you of these during your consultation.
