Gum Recession Creates Cosmetic and Health Concerns for Your Smile
Are your teeth sensitive to hot or cold beverages? Have you noticed that your teeth look longer than before? If so, Gum recession may be affecting your smile and oral health. A receding gum line occurs when the gums pull away from your teeth and shrink, exposing the underlying tooth root surfaces. The roots of your teeth are more vulnerable to factors like tooth decay and damage. Common causes of gum recession include gum disease, ill-fitting dentures or restorations, and teeth grinding, among others. At Runion Dental Group, we provide advanced gum recession treatment with the Allen Tunnel Technique and traditional grafting services to better serve you.
For Minimally Invasive Root Coverage, We Trust the Allen Tunnel Technique
The Allen Tunnel Technique is a more conservative approach to treating gum recession when compared with traditional gum grafting. A special approach is used to insert donor gum tissue under the gum line. This raises the gum level to a healthier position on the teeth. Once healed, grafted tissue blends seamlessly with existing gum tissue, improving health and appearance. By utilizing this method, we can provide root coverage for multiple teeth in the convenience of one appointment. We trust the Allen Tunnel Technique for delivering faster healing, greater comfort and more predictable results.
