what are gingival recessions
A gingival recession is when the gum migrates exposing part of the tooth’s root, making it appear longer and unhealthy. It can be localized to one tooth in a group of teeth or it can spread throughout the mouth, making the patient sensitive to eating cold foods and making them more susceptible to cavities.
On many occasions we can solve this with connective tissue grafts, with this we will cover the part of the exposed dental root and we will thicken the tissue to make it more resistant.
In case of not wanting to use connective tissue from the same patient, we can use acellular dermal matrices.
