Gum Graft - Modesto, CA

Reverse Your Gum Loss

Regain Full, Healthy Gums

Your gums may recede due to a variety of factors. The process is usually slow and hardly noticeable at first. The result over time is more tooth and root exposure, and it can also cause more sensitivity to hot, cold, and brushing. Extensive gum recession greatly increases your chances of developing tooth decay or gum disease and even having your teeth become loose and fall out.

In addition, receding gums make the smile looks less pleasing, which can affect self-confidence. As a board-certified periodontist, Dr. Clarke Filippi is a gum specialist. With his expertise and experience, he can help you reclaim the health, function, and esthetics of your gums.

How Gum Grafting Works

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.
