When recession of the gingiva occurs, not only does the body lose a natural defense against both bacterial penetration and trauma, but supporting bone loss also occurs. When gum recession is a problem, gum reconstruction using grafting techniques is an option.
Dr. Nicole Wright is known for her excellent esthetic results in treating gum recession. She uses a much less invasive tunneling technique and biomaterials to improve results and decrease healing times. Some patients are candidates for using donor tissue, thereby eliminating the need for two surgical sites. She has happy patients all over the country.
