Gum Grafting

South Side Chicago Dentist

Amongst dentists,  periodontists are known as “gum gardeners”. We absolutely love to grow gum tissue and bone. Gum grafting falls directly under our specialty. We use a variety of techniques to cover up exposed roots or increase the amount of firm gum tissue where needed, be it around teeth, or implants. There have been lots of new growth factors and graft materials developed that have made the surgery more predictable over the years. If you have long looking teeth due to gum recession and want to correct that then seek out your local gum gardener. We love watching our regenerative procedures correct the ravages of time.
