Before & After Connective Tissue Grafts


Don't Live With Gum Recession

Teeth with receding gums can be difficult to identify. Many patients notice that they have sensitive teeth when they experience increased tooth sensitivity to extreme temperatures or observe that some of their teeth look longer than others.

Significant gum recession can result in the exposed roots of teeth, leading to tooth sensitivity, gum disease, or even tooth loss. The good news is that Dr. Tanner helps patients reverse the effects of receding gums through gum grafting. 

Dr. Tanner uses soft-tissue grafts from your palate or highly specialized gum-grafting material to cover the exposed roots of teeth. The gum grafting procedure allows gum tissue to regrow. Gum grafting can be done for one tooth or several teeth, reducing tooth sensitivity and preventing future gum recession. Once recovery is complete, you won’t be able to tell the gum graft was ever there, restoring a beautiful and healthy smile.

Gum Grafting Helps Reverse the Progression of Gum Disease

Dr. Tanner uses cutting edge gum grafting techniques to treat receding gums and halt the progression of gum disease.

Also known as periodontal disease, gum disease causes gum tissue to pull away from the roots of teeth, leaving them exposed and creating pockets that collect harmful bacteria. If left untreated, periodontal disease results in bone loss and missing teeth.

Dr. Tanner helps reverse the progression of periodontal disease and gum recession using state of the art gum grafting techniques. Whether patients choose traditional gum grafting procedures to replace missing gum tissue or an innovative technique called Pinhole Surgical Technique (PST™), Dr. Tanner can help you restore a beautiful smile.
