Gum Recession Affects Millions of U.S. Adults

Often the result of genetics, gum disease or brushing too hard, gum recession can affect one tooth or many and is characterized by the following symptoms:

  • Teeth that appear longer than others
  • Loose teeth
  • Sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures
  • Feeling of a “notch” where the tooth and gumline meet

When the gums recede, they reveal more of the underlying structure of the tooth, including its roots. These structures are usually protected under cover of the gums, so without this protection they are more susceptible to bacteria and disease, which is why your mouth may become painful. To keep your teeth safe, Drs. Mario Canal and Ben Calem can restore healthy gum levels with effective gum grafting.

Dr. Calem Discusses the Importance of Treating Gum Recession

Stop the Discomfort with Healthy New Gums

During a gum graft procedure, our doctors will take a piece of your own gum tissue or that from a donor source and gently stitch it into place around the areas of recession. This returns the gum level to an attractive, healthy state by covering the tooth roots and reducing the amount of visible tooth. As the area heals, the gum graft will seamlessly attach and grow with the surrounding tissue to result in a beautiful smile.

Gum Restoration from Dedicated Periodontists

Dr. Canal studied periodontology in the Temple University School of Dentistry Postdoctoral Program in Periodontics. His knowledge and skill combined with Dr. Calem’s training through the New Jersey Dental School Department of Periodontics allows us to provide patients with the highest quality gum restoration services available. In addition to gum grafting, we also offer the minimally-invasive Pinhole® Surgical Technique to correct gum recession. During a consultation, we can help you determine which option is best for you.
