Your gums may recede due to a variety of factors. Whatever the reason, the process is usually slow and hardly noticeable at first. Before you know it, your tooth roots are showing and your teeth have become sensitive to heat and cold. The esthetic and comfort issues of receding gums are not even the worst part, though. With extensive gum recession your chance of developing tooth decay or gum disease and even having your teeth fall out increases significantly. Central Valley Periodontics & Implants can prevent all of these complications with a gum graft in Modesto, CA.
As a board-certified periodontist, Dr. Clarke Filippi is a gum specialist. Three years of advanced training in soft tissue health after dental school and continuing education courses have empowered him to diagnose and treat a variety of gum-related issues. With his expertise, he can help you reclaim the health, function, and esthetics of your gumline.
Full, healthy gums start with gum grafts. These are thin pieces of tissue sourced either from a donor or from the roof of your mouth. Dr. Filippi takes these tissues and attaches them in the areas where your gums have receded. To ensure that your gums look great and feel great, he shapes the tissue around the top of each tooth for a natural appearance that complements your smile.
