Root Coverage Grafting

Gum Grafting to Cover Exposed Roots

Patients may look older than their years because their teeth appear to be too long (long in the tooth). When gum tissue recedes or deteriorates it exposes the underlying root surface making the tooth longer. Gingival grafting included a variety of techniques that add gum tissue to the tooth to cover the exposed root surface. The addition of gum tissue returns the tooth to its natural (original) esthetic length. Below are examples of patients treated by Dr. Orth using root coverage gum grafting techniques at our office in Dallas, TX.
