Improve Esthetics and Reverse the Effects of Gum Recession

Gum recession is the process of gum tissues gradually pulling away, or shrinking, down the length of the tooth root(s). Exposing the underlying root surfaces, gum recession is a serious oral health concern, increasing the risk of tooth damage and even tooth loss. Symptoms are both functional and cosmetic, and range from tooth sensitivity to discoloration and longer-looking teeth. Treating gum recession is extremely important to your oral health, comfort and smile. Dr. Morelli has extensive training in restoring lost tissue and reversing gum recession through a variety of minimally invasive gum grafting techniques.
