BUCCAL RECESSION

Buccal Recession is the exposure of the outside part of the tooth root. This loss of gum may lead to sensitivity, poor aesthetics or a worry about losing the tooth.

The cause is usually overbrushing a tooth which is out of alignment.

The surgery involves relocating the gum back to its original position using membranes, proteins or tissue from the palate.

Some of the surgical techniques will not only restore the gum position, but will also regenerate supporting bone to the outside of the root.

These recession defects can now be treated predictably and in most cases totally eliminated.
