When gums become infected, they begin to pull away from the teeth and create small gaps (or pockets) which become filled with plaque, tartar and bacteria. This can lead to infection in the gum tissue (gum disease), which makes the gums red, swollen, painful and prone to bleeding.
Gum grafting allows us to treat and restore receding gums by transferring healthy gum tissue from one part of the mouth to another. This has the benefit of covering any exposed roots or bone and also provides a stable support for your teeth.
