You have options.

Depending on the diagnosis/classification of gingival recession the following options are available.

Free Gingival Grafts

Free gingival grafts involve the use of tissue from the roof of the mouth to increase the keratinized attached tissue around a tooth. This is often recommended to treat severe recession defects in patients that are a hindrance to dental hygiene or in patients that have sensitivity of the tooth or gum tissue.

Connective Tissue Graft

Connective tissue grafting utilizes a patient’s own tissue from the roof the mouth for the correction of gum recession to achieve root coverage to help alleviate tooth sensitivity and helps to improve esthetics. This procedure also can also be completed using donor tissue which can help with post-operative discomfort.

Welcome To Acharya Periodontics

What is a Periodontist?

A periodontist is a dentist who specializes in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of gum disease, and in the placement of dental implants. Periodontists receive extensive training in these areas, including three additional years of education beyond dental school. They are familiar with the latest techniques for diagnosing and treating periodontal disease, and are also trained in performing cosmetic periodontal procedures.

Dr. Acharya, board certified in Periodontics and dental implant surgery, can treat more problematic periodontal cases, such as those with severe gum disease or a complex medical history. She can offer non-surgical and surgical treatment options specifically suited to patient needs and preferences.
