Healthy gums protect and cover the root surfaces of teeth. When you have gum recession, the gum retracts back, exposing the vulnerable root surfaces. Dr. Towe performs Periodontal Plastic Procedures designed to rebuild lost gum. Take a look at these pictures from a recent Gum Grafting Procedure performed by Dr. Towe! The second picture was taken right after the procedure. The patient had very little discomfort, is very happy with the results, and can now smile with confidence!
