Gum Grafts with AlloDerm
Capital Dentistry Services Canada
Healthy gum tissue forms a protective collar around a tooth preventing periodontal disease, tooth sensitivity and root decay. When gum tissue recedes, exposing the tooth’s root, sensitivity may result. A cavity on the root (root caries) may also develop because the softer root surface decays more readily than the enamel on the tooth’s crown. When minor gum recession is ignored, then the likelihood of further recession and bone loss becomes much more likely.
