Gum recession resulting in longer teeth or exposed tooth roots can increase sensitivity to heat, cold or sweets and leave the tooth root susceptible to damage.  It can also alter the appearance of your smile.  Gum recession never repairs itself and usually gets worse with time.  In most cases, the area can be repaired with a new, layer of gum tissue. 

Procedure: The periodontist administers a local anesthetic, gently prepares the area and then places a gum tissue graft.
