Collagen Gum Grafting Change Your Smile, Change Your Life

Collagen Gum Grafting in San Diego

Have you recently noticed that your teeth are appearing longer than before? Do you feel as if you've developed a "toothy" smile or are the roots of your teeth exposed? If you are experiencing any of the above signs, they may be an indication that your gums are receding. Gum recession is a common occurrence and can be easily caused by overly aggressive tooth brushing, tooth grinding, and periodontal disease. Common side effects of gum recession include sensitivity to hot or cold liquids.

It's important to understand that gum recession is a serious problem that you don't want to ignore. Dr. Roya Mirkhan will help you determine the causes of your gum recession and will provide you with treatment options to get the problem under control. Gum grafting is an excellent treatment option that can reverse the damage and stop further recession that can ultimately lead to tooth loss.

Receding gums can cause your tooth roots to be exposed, which lead to a number of oral health problems. Elongated teeth and receding gums are not attractive, and you will want to fix the problem for both cosmetic and oral health reasons. Dr. Roya Mirkhan can use collagen gum grafting to cover one or several exposed roots, and to even out your gum line for a more esthetic appearance, and to reduce sensitivity.

Collagen Gum Grafting vs. Traditional Gum Grafts

Traditionally, surgery for receding gums can be painful because tissue from the roof of the mouth is removed and transplanted to replace lost gum tissue. But, Dr. Roya Mirkhan can use another effective, yet less invasive alternative. We simply use a collagen matrix to cover exposed roots and restore the form and function of your gums. Collagen gum grafting is an attractive alternative to patients because there is no need to cut open the roof of the mouth in this procedure.

Collagen gum grafting offers a number of benefits which dramatically improve your oral health and boost self-confidence:

  • Prevents tooth decay
  • Prevents bone and tooth loss
  • Alleviate sensitivity to hot and cold liquids
  • Sculpt a more aesthetically pleasing gum line
