Revitalize Your Gums with Belle Meade Smile Center

At Belle Meade Smile Center, we understand the impact of gum recession on your oral health. If you're experiencing receding gums, our dedicated team offers effective treatments, including bone and gum grafts, to restore and protect your dental well-being.

Understanding Gum Recession

Gum recession occurs when the gums shrink or pull away from the teeth, exposing the root surface. Various factors contribute to this condition, such as:

  • Faulty toothbrushing technique
  • Gingival inflammation
  • Smoking
  • Heavy occlusal forces
  • Tooth malposition
  • Abnormal muscle attachment

Potential Consequences of Gum Recession

Receding gums can lead to tooth sensitivity and an increased risk of dental decay due to exposed tooth surfaces.

Exploring Gingival Grafts

To address exposed gums, a gingival graft may be necessary. This procedure replaces the recession, ensuring adequate gum coverage to protect the tooth effectively.


Benefits of Today's Advances

Dr. Gatgens utilizes cutting-edge technology and research to perform gingival grafts accurately and comfortably. Our advanced techniques minimize discomfort, providing you with a seamless and successful treatment experience.

Comprehensive Solutions for Bone and Gum Issues

If you're facing both bone loss and gum recession, Belle Meade Smile Center has tailored solutions. Our bone grafts address volume loss caused by tooth loss, periodontal disease, or trauma. Additionally, gum grafts replace recessed areas or insufficient soft tissue due to extractions or trauma.

Safe and Tested Materials

We use Allografts, materials sourced from extensively tested donors to ensure sterility and safety. The graft materials adhere to strict guidelines set by the American Association of Tissue Banks (AATB) and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
