Frequently Asked Question: Gum Recession Treatment

Question: How do you fix gum recession?

Answer:

At Stoner Periodontic Specialists, we incorporate the most advanced, least invasive technologies for correction of gum recession. Sometimes we can simply pull the gum up or down to cover the root. With more advanced recession we can incorporate either gum transplants or an acellular dermal matrix. These therapies will cover the exposed root and therefore address the concerns of gum recession. The procedure we use is well documented but is less commonly used due to the time and technical skill required.
